For some odd reason, I've been playing Bach and Beethoven piano Concerto's this morning. In Audacity. On Linux. Very Loud. 'time compressed' or "sped up". Bach speeds up well, Beethoven not so much. And I muse if what we commonly think of as Bach is the "1001 Strings Play the Beatles Greatests Hits" version. I know there are many versions of hyped up Bach, Virgil Fox on Organ being a favorite, but it makes me wonder how Bach himself played it, after a few drinks.

One of the most apropos re-instrumentings I've ever heard was Toccata and Fugue in D minor played on an electric guitar. I wish I could find that recording, because the guitarist could have easily kept the Bella Lugosi phrasing, or done a really clean "Boston" like sound, but it managed to phrase it so that it was some really kickin' metal.

Of course having typed that, I now see that YouTube is lousy with such things.
