In Bach's time, to be true in form was an all toe technique. I learned a heel-toe technique in college and that is how I pedal Bach's works.
If one looks at online videos of HIP (Historically Informed Performances) by famous Bach organists such as Ton Koopman - one sees that it is use of toes.
If you are talking about piano pedaling, there's no easy answer. The instruments Bach could have had in mind for performance were primarily the clavichord, harpsichord and organ. Neither of these had a damper pedal. Some device (usually credited to Silbermann) that could theoretically be used much like a modern damper pedal existed during most of Bach's life, but Bach never wrote explicitly for such an instrument, nor did he use one to any extent. Furthermore, and this is really the important part, these early pianos were very different from modern pianos, and the damper pedal as well had a different effect on the sound. The kind of legato pedaling typical of Romantic and later piano technique simply didn't exist at that time, and the pedal was probably regarded as a coloristic effect, more similar in use to a harpsichord lute stop than to the damper pedal of Chopin.
Given this, there is no such thing as authentic pedal technique in Bach. Some people argue that you should, for this reason, not use the pedal at all, in accordance with what would be possible on a clavichord or harpsichord. Others rather say that if you're using a modern piano, you should use it to its full effect and in its own idiom, rather than try to imitate another instrument. Also, "authenticity" can perhaps not be considered a factor, since by using a modern piano you stray very far from any authenticity anyway.
Of course, since it was not written for such an instrument, Bach's keyboard music never truly requires pedaling, although some cases, such as the B-flat minor prelude and fugue from WTC1 and the F minor prelude and fugue from WTC2, do seem to call for legato pedaling in order to maintain good, idiomatic modern piano phrasing. On the other hand, the strict polyphonic nature, independence of parts, and swiftness of harmonic and melodic movement, in much of Bach's music, is often quite unsuited to a more Romantic approach to pedaling.
Many piano players agree that pedalling should be used to improve the tonality of the piece, but should be kept to a minimum so that the Baroque style can still be differentiated from Romantic. This means that there should not be pedal 'blurs' in the Baroque piece, keeping the quavers, if possible, slightly detached.
Born in 1685, Bach was known mainly for his keyboarding skills in playing the organ. In August 1703, he accepted the position as the organist at a church (chapel of Duke Johann Ernst in Weimar), which had a new organ tuned to a modern system that allowed a wide range of keys to be used. About this time, he began composing organ preludes. He was especially improvising preludes where a single, short music idea is explored throughout a movement.did u know bach started to write music when he was only 4!
Many composers in the Baroque and Classical eras wrote Preludes as the introductory piece to a suite including Buxtehude, Bruhns, J.S. Bach, Pachelbel and Beethoven. In the Romantic era, the prelude became a stand alone piece. While generally credited to Chopin, the stand alone form of the prelude was previously used by both Hummel and Kessler, the latter having dedicated his preludes to Chopin. Other 19th and 20th century composers with extensive use of the prelude include Scriabin, Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff and several others. 21st century composer Lera Auerbach has also composed 3 sets of preludes.
Frédéric Chopin is famous for his piano compositions. He wrote by far the most piano compositions as a composer. His etudes and preludes are very famous and acclaimed. He also wrote mazurkas, valses, sonatas, polonaises, nocturnes, scherzos and so forth. His most famous pieces are the revolutionary etude (op. 10 no. 12), ballade in g minor (op. 23) and nocturne posthume. His scherzos were very innovative, just like his preludes and etudes. (He was the first to compose a etude which was musically more demanding than technically demanding. His preludes are famous because they are all wonderful separate pieces, unlike other preludes (before Chopin) which needed be played before ('pre') another piece (for instance preludes and fugas by Bach)
Johann Sebastian Bach was a prolific German composer. He wrote concertos, operas and oratorios for orchestra and chorus. He composed more than 300 cantatas for choir and orchestra. The Well Tempered Clavier is a profound compilation of 48 preludes and fugues for keyboard (two sets of 24 each in 24 different keys).
There were several composers named Bach, as Johann Sebastian Bach had many children, some of whom became composers in their own right. JS Bach himself was a composer of Baroque music. He composed in a variety of genres, particularly sacred and choral music. He wrote Cantatas, Masses and Magnificats, Chorales and Oratorios, and much sacred choral music. His most famous works include the Brandenburg Concertos, The Well-Tempered Clavier (a collection of 48 preludes and fugues), Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Mass in B Minor and the St Matthew Passion.
Johann Sebastian Bach had 2 wives and a total of 20 children, but only 10 survived to adulthood. They include:Wilhelm Friedemann BachCarl Philipp Emanuel BachJohann Gottfried Bernhard BachGottfried Heinrich BachJohann Christian BachJohann Christoph BachCatharina Dorothea BachElisabeth Juliana Friederica BachJohanna Carolina BachRegina Susanna Bach
