Bach WTC1 B flat minor Fugue mm. 58-59: Slightly Out of Tune ?
This is concerning measures 58 - 59 from Bach WTC1 B flat minor Fugue:
To my ears, this passage has the effect of sounding “slightly out of tune” - perhaps having to do do with temperament on a modern keyboard instrument with a conventional tuning. Does anyone else hear it that way? Any comments on how to analyze this passage?
