Early Music VI

J.S.Bach, The Well-Tempered Clavier, Prelude 1

I’m not afraid to be a tradesman, to

sell my wares in the marketplace, and my

stock-in-trade is sound on paper:

staves and notes, abstruse squiggles that

convey complexity in this

new system of music, this

well-tempered, tight-caulked, yet

open sound in which my

left little finger can determine what my

whole right hand will do next.

 

I’m not afraid to be a ship-wright, indeed I

welcome you to this shipyard knowing

all my boats will float, and I have

no shame extending my hand for money

for what I give you is so much more than

you can ever give me.

    It is one of the many beautiful pieces of Bach. I recently saw a YouTube video of Tzvi Erez playing it that beautifully with his hand focused.

    Beautiful poem. It is now one of my favorites on your blog.

    True, music can touch our hearts and move us in a way money cannot express payment. Lovely piece.
