I just started learning piano a month ago. So far, I’ve only touched two pieces. I can now play the Bach Prelude in C, BWV 846.
And I’m now about 1/3 of the way through the first movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.
There’s a lot of differences between them, of which I would summarize as
Learning Bach for piano made me feel I had magic in my hands.
Learning Beethoven is making me feel I have sorcery in them!
Of course, I’m only talking from the perspective of having played only these two pieces. I can guarantee you I wouldn’t be saying the same thing if I had learned to play THIS by Bach!
That’s beyond sorcery!
That’s like… NECROMANCY!!
Or something of the sort! But while looking up this Toccata and Fugue in D minor, traditionally played for organ…
I thought about the carillon, and how the piece might sound on that. From my search, I found this incredible rendition of the Toccata on carillon!
