Re: Hello Everyone i am new here
- Hi:<br><br>Another new person, from Ohio. Bach
recordings I like? Where do I start. As Brahms said, "Study
Bach - all things start with Bach."<br><br>The first
recording that really grabed me was Glenn Gould doing The
Goldberg Variations.<br>The reason I started listening to
Bach was that I was told that Gerry Mulligan & Chet
Baker were using Bach Two-Part Inventions with their
improvision so I wanted to listen to Bach.<br><br>From the
Goldberg Variations (I have four recordings of Gould
playing them.) I went on the Philadelphia Orchestra
playing the organ works. The heard organist Helmut
Walcha. Was sidetracked by E. Power Biggs. Then heard
Marie Claire Alain. She remains one of my favorite
organists. My first hearding of the keyboard concertos was
with Glenn Gould as well and I recently bought them on
CD. To me Gould adds so much to what ever he plays
Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Gibbons et al<br><br>There is
so much more to tell. I can't think of anything by
Bach I don't like. I enjoy the Cantatas, the Sinfonias
to those Cantatas, the Concertos, the Flute Sonatas
(Elaine Shaffer!!!), Xmas Oratorio, Mass in b etc.
<br><br>There is a wonderful organ music program from Minnesota
Public Radio, Pipe Dreams. It is broadcast on Public
Radio stations and some commerical Fine Arts or
Classical Music stations such as WCLV here in Cleveland at
10:30 p.m. Sunday nights. The host is Michael Barrone.
He and I are Bob & Ray fans and when we see each
other at conferences we launch into Bob & Ray routines.
<br><br>But Bob & Ray, that's a different story!<br><br>I'll
write more later. Thanks for listening.<br><br>Yours
for the OBU<br><br>Bill
- Hi again it's been a while.<br>Someone here gave me a tip on wich book to get if I wanted to learn how to write fuges.<br>But I can't remember the name of the book.<br>Hope you can help me.
