comment Should chords in Bach's solo violin pieces be arpeggiated if not marked as such?
I know a baroque violin teacher, specialising in Bach, who explicitly told me chords in Bach's solo violin works are meant to be arpeggiated. Disclaimer: I am not a violinist.

comment Is it too late to learn music theory and composition?
@user20273 Specifically on fugues: m.hooning.myahk.nl/analyse/fuga/fuga-tekst-en-red.pdf (Dutch link, English PDF). I should mention substantial theoretical knowledge and solid sight-reading are prerequisites, but it is very much worth it. For me, it was a real eye-opener when I read it.

The book is not quite old compared to the music the OP is talking about, namely Baroque counterpoint. This is one of the advantages of studying classical music: your resources don't get outdated very easily.

Apparently, half a sentence got lost somewhere between the StackExchange app and the website.

comment Dissonances and harmony
This last paragraph. Listen a lot to music you don't understand (play it, if you can!) and it will become more and more clear what is going on and why.

comment How do you write a corresponding bassline for an already written melody?
1st species? Could you elaborate on that? Also, what does "re" in your second sentence mean? Which "rules" are you referring to? How does this answer the question?

comment Where is the manuscript of Escenas Romanticas by Granados?
@BobBroadley While one would think the publisher must have had access to the manuscript, in this case this assumption was wrong. Apparently, the manuscript has been lost (see the last edit of my question).

comment Where is the manuscript of Escenas Romanticas by Granados?
To answer the question in the last sentence: because he definitely had no access to the manuscript. Boileau emailed back, I'll edit it into the question (since I can't answer anymore).

comment Where is the manuscript of Escenas Romanticas by Granados?
@BobBroadley Of course, the publisher must have had access to the manuscript! Thank you. It also is an interesting suggestion to ask on MusicFans.SE, though I am looking for the manuscript in the capacity of a pianist, not of a fan.
