I always hear classical snobs calling Bach "mechanical," "lifeless," "austere," or "background music." I never understood it; Bach's shit was always mad emotional to me.

As a guy who knows next to nothing psued-tunes, I've always found Mozart's music much more tepid and sterile.

Bach was a fuccboi

Prove me wrong

>>61963146
they're straight retarded

you want lifeless? Go listen to Mozart it's boring as fuck and _that_ is background music for rich people to listen to while they powder their wigs and eat their crumpets or whatever the fuck

Bach made music for the only person who matters (our lord and savior jesus christ)

Do you think he is going to make lifeless music for our lord? Tell those classical fags to go fuck themselves or tell them to meet me at this starbucks if they have any shit to be talking about Bach

anyone who doesn't like bach or wagner probably listens to RYMeme shit like schoenberg or feldman. it's safe to say you should disregard their opinions on everything
>>
>>61963146
The whole Bach's stuff is emotionless wank thing's a meme. It's not classical snobs that say it, it's people new to classical. Most plebs I show Beethoven to for example can easily pick up on the things in his music. They can't do the same for Bach and think it's complexity for complexity's sake. Bach's work is like perfect because it is good in every way. There are a lot of nuances in terms of the variety of emotions, complexity, and arrangement/texture involved in his stuff.

literally no fan of art music has ever said this. Anyone who knows the first thing about Bach knows he marries emotion with technical skill into a perfect form of expression.

>I've always found Mozart's music much more tepid and sterile.
Good taste. Mozart is pretty boring outside of his operas, Requiem and Mass in C minor
>>
>>61963486
>no mention of his quintets or concertos

Pleb

Further proof that Mozart is underrated.

>>61963220
Bach is the most popular composer on RYM. Wagner is popular too.

ya, this didnt happen, thanks for posting though

They're right. Bach's compositions are far more focused on being intricate than emotive. That's a fact. It's not a knock against him, as a lot of modern music does the same, such as various subgenres of jazz and metal.

>>61963508
didn't mention them for a good reason. They're boring.

Thats not a fact. Not even close.

Listen to this:

or this:

Full of emotion. 100% more emotion than any Jazz or Metal.

Uh, no it's not? A lot of Bach's stuff isn't that complex by today's standards, and most of his work is supposed to be religious and spiritual.
>>
>>61963624
>le complex / emotional dichotomy

this is like rockism 101. or else high school orchestra levels of stupidity. i wish that /mu/ wasn't so obsessed with "i've played an instrument since i was 4 because i'm white and middle class!" as a valorizing badge of honor for one's opinions on music.
>>
>>61963624
bachs compositions arent particularly complex, it was the early 1700s, highly polyphonic music was just the norm.

WHY YOU GUYS ALWAYS BE URINATING ON GREAT MUSIC
