Revisiting the Bach French suites. Previous visits over the decades have left me cold compared to the other vast output of solo clavier Bach works, but #richardegarr
and his magnificent harpsichord and brilliant playing may get me this time. ✌
I’ve plateaued right about here...forever... I can’t seem to learn more...But I think it’s pretty. I wonder what inspired the melody...sometimes, when I practice, I imagine different real and hypothetical moments, feelings, quantum meta spiritual ideas, that connect me to listen...Bach is my internal soundtrack because I’m not cool enough for metal. #bach #cminorsuite #frenchsuite #jsbach #music #practicepracticepractice #piano
MY PEOPLE! how are you? Right now I’m working on speeding up the tempo of this Bach Courante and phrasing towards the more cadential downbeats. Enough about me though, let me share what has been working for me so that I can do my best to help you out!
In terms of increasing the tempo, I’ve been practicing at half and quarter tempo and using different rhythms and accents to make my playing more secure at a faster tempo.
For phrasing, I’ve been concentrating on keeping my momentum going beyond barlines until I hit a point where I can release some of the tension (like at cadences.)

J.S. Bach - French Suite No.4 : allemande
La primera palabra que se me viene a la mente cuando escucho o toco esto es “solemne”. Las posibilidades de frasear en este tipo de obras son realmente muy liberadoras... y el lenguaje técnico lo deje en otro pantalón.
