September 28 is the release date for the Bach cd. I am hoping to receive the pre-release box today or tomorrow where I am on tour. I will let you know. Keith--thanks for the invite--we should make the Bach master class happen in the spring of 2011. Sounds like fun!

How does the sound quality on the CD compare to the sound in the video and samples on Arkivmusic? The video and samples sound angular and punchy (extremely high contrast in dynamic ranges), but I can't tell if it's the interpretation or the engineering.

(Not that a high-contrast approach to dynamics in Bach is a bad thing, it's just that my tastes are for a smoother, longer line. Something more vocal than percussive.)

Me too--I found the cd much better though. I am a STRONG advocate for vocal line in Bach. One thing to keep in mind, is that a cd is NEVER a valid enough and definitive sound experience compared to listening to the person playing in the same room as you.

Oz--I hope to get to Australia sometime soon--working on getting an orchestra to join the Zwilich Global Project for Ellen Taaffe Zwilich's 'Shadows' project. ChrisKeys, I would be delighted to be in Dallas/Fort Worth area. Just waiting for the invite and have put in dibs to the DSO for Lowell Liebermann's Third Concerto since Lowell had been the Dallas Symphony's Composer-in-Residence.

Tell me more, tell me more!
How big an orchestra do you need? What sort of orchestra? Can you elaborate on the Zwilich Global Project?

Hi Oz--If you send an email to me at sharpnat@aol.com, I can send the project proposal to you. I will say that, having an orchestra in Australia will be most important in bringing the world together in this commissioning project. The title is 'Shadows', because for many years, peoples have migrated from their roots to other lands, taking with them shadows of their homeland, culture, religion, etc. The score will be for small orchestra. We have the US and Iceland on board, with the premiere scheduled for November 5, 2011 with the Louisiana Philharmonic.

RE: BACH ON A STEINWAY

9-29-2010

IT HAS ARRIVED!

'Bach On a Steinway' was ordered directly from ArkivMusic on the 26th for release on the 28th. It is now the 29th at 2PM and I am listening to a fantastic performance with tears streaming down my cheeks.

Never have I been so in touch with Bach.

Thank you for sharing your talent and interpretations with us, JB!

And for ArkivMusic for the quick shipment.

Roberta

My copy arrived today--wow--I can only echo the praise! Lovely playing and wonderful sound (nothing beats DPA/B&K 4006 mics for the piano!) Your clearly delineated counterpoint is marvelous. The only elements that would improve it are had it been released in a multi-channel SACD format and if it included the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue! smile

Where could I order in Europe the CD version, and how much is that?

Thanks for the link, but thats in the US. The price of the cd is great, 15$ is a price I would definitely pick it up for, but now there comes 8$ shipping on top of it, and customs. Is there a European Distributor?

Cheers

According to Arkiv Music, not yet. You can buy it digitally of course through Arkiv Music, iTunes, Amazon...plus, with exchange rates being what they are, the price will end up being about the same in Europe since the CD will be more expensive there.

Downloading as we speak, I also bought your cd of the Vivaldi transcriptions!

Wow, amazing recording quality! Obviously terrifically played, you do Bach justice! Thanks for a great cd!

But did anyone else notice clipping in the loudest passage's? For instance 0:42 track 1. I must say I listen over-critically because i have KRK Expose E8B's.

Ok I just rendered it in Logic, and there was no clipping, also in playback no clipping. Does anyone know why iTunes gives me clipping? I'm glad its not in the recording though ! Very nice quality indeed!!

It seems it has to do with the iTunes functions of volume optimizer and sound optimizer. By turning them off it sounds much better already.

I see Amazon.com shows it on their UK site too, but it's 30.99 pounds (roughly $49.36 USD?), and currently on back order.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bach-Steinway-J-...1277&sr=1-1


I guess digital download is the way to go for Europeans, at least for now.

Arkiv Music seems to want this to go very big--so everyone who can please spread the word, I am sure this will be most helpful. It's for the Steinway and Sons label, as they will have four releases per year. (So maybe a Grammy wouldn't look so bad on the piano??LOL!)
