The amazing thing, and one which perplexed me for a long time was this. If you connect two strongly stereo(d) lh and rh together in mono mode (supposedly) it sounds totally wierd. I had a stereo piano which displayed this trait. Fortunately, the Gr

Yes, I'm not saying that artistic judgments are tantamount to scientific facts. And I do distinguish between music that I think is "great" and music that I happen to love (in many cases, the two categories coincide). Music that one happen

Not specifically on fugues, but a method book on species counterpoint I'd recommend highly is Arnold Schoenberg's "Preliminary Exercises in Counterpoint". I worked through the 2 part and the early 3 part exercises in this book. Many years a

OK LaReginadellaNotte, you chose to use the word "great" in music to refer to what musical professionals (performers, historians, musicologists, etc.) have generally agreed is "great." But you're not saying that this sort of gene
