Today Bach’s dynamism fascinates young people. But who among them takes the trouble of dismantling, one by one, the ensemble of voices, the polyphonic complex in order to plunge into each isolated voice and extract all its flavor? It seems that what appeals most to them is the dynamic bloc. This kind of dynamism can be found in a concerto of Hindemith or of Falla because their density does not stand to be disassembled; there it exists through accumulation. But Bach’s dynamism is of a very different nature.
