Bach: To Vibrate Or NOT To Vibrate? in The Fingerboard Posted May 19 · Report reply Great Music is Great Music, Bach's greatness survives transposition or re-instrumentation or re-orchestration without losing a thing. Vibrato or no? Romantic interpretation or Stoic fundamentalism? Performers choice as to how to play it and the listeners choice as to what they want to hear. The music is not affected and the name of Bach is not sullied. Get over it people. Revel in his genius and artistry. Your opinion is just that. There is no right or wrong. Whatever Bach piece you are playing, make it your own.
