that is a good point, altho i find fingering for Bach and Mozart to be very intuitive once you know the basics.

What mark c just said brings more sense to a gould quote i have been pondering. He said that many of the late classical and romantic composers were more "Hedonistic" therefore he didnt care for many of them.

I think when the music took second place to the physicality of the hand or even the attachment of showing off, "Look what i can do", then it really changed the "Music" and much was attricuted to ego.

When i was a kid i listened to Yngwie Malmsteen on the guitar, and while it was reall really kool to hear how fast he played, there is only so much of that you can take. I eventually favored songwriters that were more musical rahter than technichal wizards.

The same applies to great composers, and not just in the boroque and classical, my favorite, but also contemporary genius like John Williams and John Barry.

For playing Mozart, my teacher always told me to "think simpler" and to keep my fingers closer to the keyboard.
Someone here also said that playing the harpsichord makes it easier to understand the Bach and Mozart technique. I agree- it helps develop sensitivity and evenness in the fingers.
