comment How to play the tremolos in Mussorgsky's Con mortuis
Is the problem here that you a) don't understand the notation or b) can't play it technically or c) something else?

comment What does the staff notation half-moon symbol on top of the last note indicate?
Which seems quite improbable after comparing the ending and beginning of the two.

The coloratura in this Haydn sonata is somewhat similar, so I thought it might be a different version, since these coloraturas were often improvised. I should have noted the opus number, Haydn's opus 27 is (as far as I can tell) a piano trio.

Is the music in the photo by any chance from a Haydn piano sonata?

@SomeDudeOnTheInterwebs Every skill is, it only depends on how far you want to develop it.

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 This is one of the advantages of studying classical music: your resources don't get outdated very easily.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?
