Before I do my final post today, I want to thank Mark who introduced me to the works of concert pianist Awadagin Pratt. I was absolutely mesmerized by Pratt's performance of J.S. Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582. Pratt's performance was at the White House Evening of Classical Music on November 4, 2009.




Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Hey Richard, I've reviewed Book I of the Frescobaldi toccatas: there are six likely candidates for your D minor (prima, segonda, terza, quarta, settima, decima). All with one flat in key sig and various C-sharp accidentals. Book II has another six (prima, seconda, sesta, settima, ottava, nona) with right key sig, didn't get as far as the accidentals... )

Yes, that paprika gets everywhere, doesn't it?! (ha). Happy Belated Birthday!

Wow, Griffin, that's FABULOUS, in so many ways.... Thank you so much for that!

It's strange, but piano and harpsichord are so different. I think I would also like to hear this on a harpsichord.

And I'm so loving the fact that my friend has led me back to Bach with these two volumes, yesterday, as I dance around Croft and Froberger and Purcell and Blow and Frescobaldi. It does all come back to Bach. Even with a Passacaglia - we've been studying heavily the basso ostinato forms this term, which are so often based on a passacaglia.

Can anyone tell me what that piano is?
(I won't ask you where Awadagin got his shirt, but I have some friends who might be interested!)

It's the eighth, ottava, in the second volume of 11, Eglantine.

You'll recognise it instantly from the distinct lack semiquavers littering the score (sight reading material for the likes of myself) and making it a handy vehicle for expressing yourself quite freely with your newly acquired ornamental flourishes! smile

I did see Cheryl's subtle hint, btw, but I also caught the cake yesterday though I was unable to make progress through the bug!

PS. I know there was a spurious fugue, I didn't know of a fake toccata. (I hope this isn't the one!)

The piano is a Steinway made uniquely for the White House - you can see the eagle legs.

Thanks, Richard.

The fake toccata is this one:

Richard, you beat me to it. Yes, we are losing so many great people.

I also love that pre-disco era. Great song and footage.

It is Victoria Day in Canada today, so I figured I should post something in the spirit of it. Check out this brilliant, and very strange, outtake from Gould's recording of the uber-famous Goldberg Variations.

P.S. If you don't know a Quodlibet is a contrapuntal combination of two distinct melodies, which in this case is the God Save the King and the Star Spangled Banner.

I really really am sad that one of the brothers Glibb has died. i am so sad I have wept real tears made of blood from my ears and eyes and anoos.

Obviously the reasoning behind this latest and apparently retarded bout of sadness is due to selfish self interest by yours truly and not motivated by any real sense of loss for another human soul that has recently exited this mortal coil.

I say self interest., yes I am sad that we will obviusly be hearing nothing but glibb brother grim in the near future on the radio, telly, and they will probably make a sqeaky dog toy no doubt in the shape of a man with very small testies, vis a vis one robbing glibb brother.

The money raised will go towards the upkeep of robbing glibbs eternal falsetto vocal chords that have allready been torn out by scientists and encapsulated in resin as a future warning to sperm doners not to attempt heeby geeby songs without wearing a truss.


I am still enjoying the fact that elvis the "King" passed away while trying to pass a large one on the toilet with a burger in his hand, now that they have stopped playing his songs all the time on the radio and telly, but it took much too long.

And I cant wait around for very long for this glibb thing to recede into the background clatter of the twenty first century mainly because i am getting on in years and my brain cannot contemplate either a heaven or a heck with robin glibb in it, in effect I am now more terrified of dying than I was as a small child.

I dont know whether to be good or bad anymore, supposing I am good and glibb is up there when I die? Then what? can I ask the almighty if I can go downstairs instead?

But then again, if I carry on being a very bad man and glibb is downstairs when I die, then I have effectively wasted my whole lifes labours to achieve a warm afterlife with people i care about all around me.

OOOH fantasic, glibb being a catholivc may have gone to purgatory or limbo, both of these places I have no intention of visiting due to misapprehensions about seating arrangements.

Limbo sounds really bad for me pesonally because of my bad back, I cant bend down very far.

Purgatory sounds bad as well in fact in sounds so bad that it may be good enough for the sadly departed and not so very vocal now are we glibb brother, and especially so if I keep being bad because I will go downstairs instead hopefully.

Except of course it troubles me that Michael Jackson may be downstairs because of some stuff he got away with when he was nearly still alive on this earth to do with paying parents off for silence.

This is confusing, I just considered being good at the last moment to get a ticket to heaven, even if its just in the stalls, but then remembered donny osmond will be there, unless of course he really was too friendly with his sister as folk have allready sussed.

Muat remember to talk to PPP about how to become an atheist, it appears so much safer in the long run, and the dead stay dead which for me personally is a big plus.

Methinks there is a certain guy in the Walsh countryside who loves Robin Gibbs as much as he loves hearing my jazz! I guess I can live with that.

Okaaaaay, quickly moving along! I've only got time for one post today. Too many other things to do. Here is Marvin Gaye with "Got to Give it Up"

Sorry dudes and dudettes but you would not want me to lie would you?

I did not like robin glibb or any of the heeby jeebies at all even when they had just been created in the lab and hadnt yet done me any personal harm. (that came later)

Robin used to steal my sisters pants off the washing line, I was allways chasing him away and it wore me out as he was very fast at leaping garden walls.

He never gave them back or said he was sorry even when he got to be the richest man in the world by singing at folks so much they gave him money for old rope, which incidently , he gathered when he was younger by stealing folks whole washing lines as well as ladies pants.

once when I shouted after him "go away you strange man and leave my sisters panties alone" he started singing the very beginings of "staying alive" back at me.

I dont like bullies, especially pant stealing bullies.

AND the song "staying alive turned out to be a big lie after all didnt it? as he didnt, which has just been proved beyond reasonable doubt by his recent failure to stay alive.

I dont like lying pant stealing bulllies.

Rossy, I can certainly handle you're not liking Robin G. and my jazz. After all this is RST, and I can go right ahead playing some of those things knowing there are others who may like it (or not).

As for the history with Robin that you mention I can understand these deep seated feelings you are harboring. In all truthfulness, however, I've told you a million times not to exagerate! laugh

Neither the video nor its description show her name. There are several other video of her performances from which I got her name: Hiromi Uehara.
