Dear Sand Tiger, Sorry to hear about your dad. The loss of a loved one can sap the joy out of life. I''m sure, not only I, but also others, will attest to that from personal experience. Give yourself time. I can't explain why I keep coming back

I tried to submit the Davidsbündlertänze op.6 Nr.8, but the form messed up the ü and ä. Am I doing something wrong with the encoding of my browser, or is the software not UTF-8 compliant?

The only one with which I am fairly familiar is the Opus 73 - composed in 1828. It was originally conceived for solo piano - but became Chopin's first (and only, I believe) work for two pianos. A couple of years ago I found the arrangement for solo

That Steinway was never owned by him, but it was used by him for one concert season. Afterwards, Steinway stored it away until they donated it to the Smithsonian.

Yes, they have been extracted and collected primarily from his cantatas, and are Bach's settings of Lutheran hymns. They are the big, goosepimply moments in the cantatas, and are considered masterpieces of four-part choral writing.
