This is cool because this person is incredible.

It’s also neat because it helps throw into relief some of the distinguishing features unique to each style.

I just love it when someone is so unbelievably good at what they do.

Don’t you?

  1. Have to say, I do like a bit of Baroque (Bach especially). I once heard someone on BBC Radio 2 describe Baroque as ‘full of twidly bits’, which I think is an awesome description. (The same BBC presenter also said that the Baroque style developed from increasingly sophisticated musical notation which allowed composers to write down semi-tones and semi-demi quavers instead of just the basic notes).
