Don't you think minor keys sound better than major keys?

I see myself always stick to minor keys. My most favourite composers are Bach and Vivaldi but the pieces I listen from them are always in minor keys.

  • I usually prefer minor over major in Baroque as well but I think major keys present more... opportunities in Romantic and modern music. Like it's more interesting to hear a major to minor modulation or a V/vii than just a vii to I. Those wouldn't stand out to our ear as much without the major to clash against.

  • Yeah. More dissonance.

  • I see what you mean, but though I kinda have the same experience I sometimes feel listening Tsjaikovski, who uses major keys rather often.
