of the Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, and the keyboard cadenza in
the 5th Brandenburg. In other words, thundering and rocking heavy
thick harpsichord, Bach's version of boogie woogie rhythm. I am not
talking about fantasias that are all over the keyboard but lack
rhythm, some sustained rhythm should be part of it. The cadenza from
the Brandenburg has parts that are fantasia-like (loose) and some that
are forward-pulsating rhthym. The first movement of the Concerto No.
1 is the best eample of what I mean: forward propulsive like a
runaway freight train, and very thickly-textured, Can anyone point me
to some other, perhaps lesser known works that have these monumental
harpsichord qualities, maybe trio sonatas or solo works, or whatever?
The keyboard suites are not it. Thank you very much.
