It’s one thing to listen to a song, but it’s a whole different experience to actually see it with your own eyes.
Below are visual demonstrations of Bach’s “‘Little’ Fugue in G minor” and Debussy’s “Clair de lune”. You can see how each instrument relates to the rest of the ensemble and all the different dynamic shifts that occur in classical music. It’s incredible to see how complex this kind of music can get, and I know it makes me appreciate these classical composers much more. There are tons of these videos on YouTube, and it’s worth looking up to see if one of your favorite songs has a visual demonstration.
Hopefully this gives you a newfound appreciation for Classical music – it’s not boring I swear!
