Q. What is Early Music performance, or historical performance?
A. We play on instruments from the time of the composers, and we use the original music and playing techniques: it’s a special sound.
Q. Why are there no conductors?
A. Conductors weren’t invented until the 19th century; since we seek to recreate a historical performance, the music is led from the keyboard or violin, or the music is played as chamber music~or both :)
Q. What are period instruments or original instruments; how are they different from modern instruments?
A. As instruments became modernized in the 19th century, builders and players tended to focus on the volume of sound and the stability of tuning. Modern steel strings replaced the older materials, and instruments were often machine made. Historical instruments, built individually by hand and with overall lighter construction, have extremely complex overtones—which we find delightful. Modern instruments are of course perfectly suited to more modern music.
Q. Why is the pitch lower, or higher?
A. Early Music performance uses many different pitches, and these pitches create different tone colors on the instruments. See https://goo.gl/pVBNAC
Bach's prelude BWV 999 features a dialogue of two textures. The more present texture, which consists of an endless arpeggio in the treble range, is accompanied by a flat-footed bass line that is almost invariably composed of two melodic skips downwards. This bass pattern is varied only once, in the thirty-third bar (Bach loved to construct pattern in threes), where the work stabilizes in G Major before the final coda. In the arpeggiated part, long lines of counterpoint are carefully woven into the chordal texture, also resolving in the thirty-third bar with the bass line. In the middle section of the work, the stepwise motion of the bass settles on a long pedal point on D which oscillates briefly with the E Flat a half step higher; the E Flat is the pivot point between the two keys of C Minor and G Major.

To use Richard Crocker's term, the arpeggios "ruffle" the homophony, and Bach uses his genius to create a small gem of a prelude from the different textures and harmonies.

The original manuscript for the prelude includes the rubric "pour le luth" (for the lute), and the work can be performed on different types of lutes or keyboards including the lute harpsichord, and sounds well on all of these. On the lute, the performer can use dynamics to accentuate some of the contrapuntal lines, but the work is equally persuasive on the keyboard.
Pitch A=415; temperament: Neidhardt-Doodle

Ouvindo essa música, se alguém me perguntar: "Quem é você?", eu só posso responder: "Eu sou Prelude in C Minor, de J.S. Bach, "pour le luth" BWV 999, tocado por David Tayler". In english: Listening to this song, if someone asks me, "Who are you?", I can only respond: "I am Prelude in C Minor, by J.S. Bach," pour le luth "BWV 999, performed by David Tayler."

Когда я учился второй год в музыкальной школе по классу фортепиано, я возненавидел Баха именно из-за этой прелюдии до-минор. Как же мерзко она звучала в моём понимании и в моём исполнении. Я ведь ещё медленнее исполнял её, не соображая гармонии этого произведения. Предпочитал более лёгкую музыку - Моцарта, Россини. А когда я сдал её на 3 балла, то первый раз в жизни почувствовал, что означает слово "отмучался".
Однако!...Спустя несколько месяцев после окончания моих мучений с этим "занудством" до-минор, я понял, как я глубоко заблуждался!!! По радио я услышал эту прелюдию в исполнении гитариста, который её исполнял в темпе ещё более быстром, чем исполнение на этом видео. Как всё было так красиво сплетено в кружева! И гармония такая красивая, лёгкая и воздушная! Именно тогда я понял: Бах - это гений!!!
