How a Bach Canon Works. Brilliant.

Brilliant. This moving manuscript depicts a single musical sequence played front to back and then back to front. Give the video a little time to unfold and enjoy.

    You may have re-opened pandora’s Box for me
    I spent a year just out of HS obsessed with the “opfer”
    But this time I might eschew the maze and skinny dip in the abyss

    I appreciate learning how a Bach Canon does its Bach Canon stuff. Being a fan of Bach Canons. I don’t appreciate being told what to think of it. Keep you patronizing “brilliant” and let me make my own decisions.

    What a pleasure is to heard the music of a genious ,but also the notes and the Virtual- “game” of another special masterpiece.

    Thank you.
