Erica Ann Sipes is a talented pianist and cellist living and working in Blacksburg, Virginia. Her blog always provides interesting insights on music performance. Her recent post, "Fugues, Glorious Fugues" manages -- in a few short paragraphs -- to present impressions of this form from the inside as a performer, and on the outside as a casual listener.
Sipes also includes this wonderful video from Lenzorg (and you know how we love fugal videos).
Erica Ann Sipes writes;
I love it when music is magical.
I love it when beauty is combined with order.
I love fugues!
