THE MUSIC SALON: classical music, popular culture, philosophy and anything else that catches my fancy...
Genius at its purest. Ever the opera composer. So Bach-like and yet so hard to imagine Bach writing that ascending diatonic scale in the lacrimosa, which then abruptly switches to a chromatic run of dotted quarter notes. Like a rocket taking off and shedding its booster. So dramatic! How did he do it?
I think composers have been asking themselves that about Mozart for a long, long time! "How did he do it?"
