Fugue in C Minor on a Theme by Legrenzi by J. S. Bach BWV 574

May 3, 2015

This is played on harpsichord on youtube by Gerard van Reenen, and is metaphorically reminiscent of mathematics. A musical fugue does not have the precise and severe beauty of a mathematical identity but it is the same kind of idea. The fugue has many rules which sometimes get in the way of the music, but is undoubtedly a high art brought to perfection by J. S. Bach.”

We would have thought that Ron preferred a different Bach work,

We can just imagine him, down in his (shared) sewer playing with his organ, and playing the evil genius for all that he is worth.
