Re: Hello everyone =^o^=
- I listened to the entire St. Matthew Passion over
this past Easter and fell more deeply in love with it
than ever. Parts of it still play in my mind.
Spiritual bread indeed... ever since I first heard it more
than 20 years ago.<br><br>I've loved Bach's music
since I was a little kid. I play the violin and the
viola and my favourite musical period is the Baroque,
but the pieces I enjoy practising most are Bach's.
Especially the unaccompanied violin sonatas, and the cello
ones which I play in a viola transcription. I'll
probably never play them as well as I'd like to, but
working on them has given me a lot of joy.<br><br>I heard
an anecdote on a radio program about Bach not long
ago. Apparently someone who had commissioned a
keyboard piece from him complained that the piece was too
difficult to play. "Just practice it then," J.S. told him.
"You have ten fingers as good as mine." The radio
broadcaster paused, and then he said, "Heh, that's easy for
him to say."<br><br>It's my first time here and I'm
just browsing around, but I wanted to throw that in
- 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.
