Perfect timing to start a traversal of 'the 48' :!: :lol:


I have difficulties to translate that. Does "traversal" mean something like "transition"?


Pick your choice:

tra·verse (tr-vûrs, trvrs)
v. tra·versed, tra·vers·ing, tra·vers·es
v.tr.
1. To travel or pass across, over, or through.
2. To move to and fro over; cross and recross.
3. To go up, down, or across (a slope) diagonally, as in skiing.
4. To cause to move laterally on a pivot; swivel: traverse an artillery piece.
5. To extend across; cross: a bridge that traverses a river.
6. To look over carefully; examine.
7. To go counter to; thwart.
8. Law
a. To deny formally (an allegation of fact by the opposing party) in a suit. See Synonyms at deny.
b. To join issue upon (an indictment).
9. To survey by traverse.
10. Nautical To brace (a yard) fore and aft.


I think that I would like to traverse the WTC by 2.) "To go up, down, or across (a slope) diagonally, as in skiing." I think that skiing through Bach's WTC could be fascinating.

Hi Chris,

The WTC I and II.... I think all those statements and sequences, strettos, questions and answers, mordents (which few can agree on), and fugue voices, etc. would not be my cup of tea, even after 48 years. This late romantic repertoire truly feeds my soul as they say. I'd better stick to what I understand and play fairly well. But thanks for that interesting thought. :)

David
