Performed by Stephen Malinowski and accompanied by his Music Animation Machine classical music visualizations, enjoy Frédéric Chopin‘s Etude, opus 25 #4 in A minor.

Malinowski’s music animations have taken on a variety of visual forms over the years as he explores shapes, colors, connections, and movements that help to illuminate the compositions. In the fugue in C major from the first book of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, performed by Kimiko Ishizaka, it can be easier to identify the different layers of music.

Ishizaka performs the prelude in B major from the first book of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier to these pulsing holiday light-style notes, as well.

And finally, enjoy Puzzle Canon a6 (at the fourth), version 4 by Timothy Dwight Edwards, performed by the Double Entendre Chamber Ensemble. Led by oboes, bassons, and english horns, the colorful disks lock into place.
