Evening everybody!

I'm also enjoying the recital, but I wanted to say hi over here. I hope you all are doing well, my friends.

See you all later.

Good morning everyone! P.J. and Richard, I assume Rossy is extremely busy these days since I got by with that reference to Roy Orbitson. The last time I got away with something like that was last year when he was so busy with completing his very first composition. We hadn't heard from him in many many days! However, he surfaced just as me and Wayne were getting into a bit of mischief with some naughty remarks.

Anyways, I only have time for one post today. It's a busy time at work and home. Recaredo, introduced some of us to flamenco, last Christmas if my memory serves me well. While this is not traditional flamenco one of my friends introduced me to this artist who performs flamenco jazz on the piano. I found it very interesting. Have a listen and see what you think.

Here is Chano Dominguez & Band playing "Oye Como Viene"

Well, since it's so quiet today, I think it's a good time to post this video I've been saving for a while.
I can't wait to hear Richard's detailed analysis of the music- it's quite complex and dynamic and I'm not sure he's up to it.
I think if Freddy Mercury were still alive today, it'd bring tears to his eyes.

Note the piano at 0:52 seconds. Wish I could play that well.
And, gals, check out the lead singer/drummer at 0:57 seconds. Who could resist such a hairy, sexy dude? sigh....

Griffin, I’m glad you posted about flamenco jazz.

I attended this concert in my city. I know the pianist very well (he’s my nephew).

WOW!! Recaredo, I am very impressed with this. Your nephew and this ensemble are very talented. I happened to be on my lunch break while I was listening, and one of my colleagues heard this and stopped by to listen. He is a professional jazz vocalist as well. He was also impressed. Thank you for sharing this. It was like having a desert after my lunch!

Feel free to share more in the future. Back to work for me. I will check in later.

As 10cc said, Oh Donna...

Saturday is party day, so lots of preps between now and then. We shall of course have a minute's disco dancing in honour of the queen of disco.

Indeed, and as happenstance would have it, this has unexpectedly come back to haunt Griffin just when everyone thought that it wouldnt.

Because Rossy is here and Rossy did notice.

Apparently there is a little "O" a middle sized "O" and a very large "O" which I believe is the one that Griffin gave reference to. All these O's are very different and have different meanings.

I am presuming the Americanisation of "Big O " is taken from the UK "very large O" which is probably the type of O that pianojoy derives most delight from, I know I would, normally, and if I didnt have a prostate exam at the hospital to attend immediately afterwards say.

I say "hospital" because the three thai girls working in a rented room told me to call it a call "hospital" if anyone who was in uniform ( that wasnt themselves) asked.

I didnt know you had to tip nurses before that happened.

Anyways Yes, Griffin .

Griffin, I’m so glad to see you and your colleague enjoyed the video of my nephew Sergio. Now he lives in Dallas, he is doing PhD studies at Texas University. I hope he succeeds in his career.

Thanks for your comment, Griffin.

Aha! I see that I can draw Rossy out when I make a slip up with various unintended meanings and interpretations. Unfortunately I do that without even trying. I never know when that's going to happen. oh well, it's a tough job that someone has to do, and It may as well be me.

Hi everyone, I don't have much time to post today and I'm just finishing my lunch break. However, I want pay my respects to Donna Summers (R.I.P.). Richard, I hadn't heard the news of her death yesterday until well after you posted. I loved your post.

Here is my contribution today. This was the first time I saw her on TV. It was electrifying.

Peace!

Lovely post, Griffin.

I'm still trying to get my head around what we should do here tomorrow, as a tribute to her. There will be fans, including me (well, 25 or so). I have various recordings. mmmm.

I was playing in a rock band and very disparaging of 'Disco' music.

Until I heard this.



I later got the extended remix, too!

Eglantine, I've been trying to track down Frescobaldi's D minor toccata. I don't know where I know it from but it's not too difficult. It was number eight in one book and number two in another if memory serves. I can't find it on YouTube.

It may have been one of the scores I was using at Cardiff Uni but I definitely don't have it now. I can't even remember how it went frown though I'm sure I'd recognise it if I heard it again.

Let me know when you've made your choice.

Richard, the conjunction of Giorgio and Donna in that song was something else. It really did change everything. Beyond the recording itself, the instrumentation, the beat, the everything, it spawned the whole remix culture (well, remixes of Kraftwerk's TEE, Detroit treatments of 80s Sheffield electro, also had a hand, but... that was the big one).

There's a fabulous book, Last Night a DJ Saved My Life (Broughton & Brewster), that covers this whole era's remix culture, which I highly recommend.

Frescobaldi: I THINK I have settled on Aria detta la Frescobalda (and variations). All I know on the toccatas... is that there is one that is fake! Not by him, but quite well known.
Have you checked out IMSLP? There are lots of the toccatas there, in Barenreiter editions. I mean, the complete first and second books.

http://erato.uvt.nl/files/imglnks/usimg/...rks._Vol._3.pdf

http://javanese.imslp.info/files/imglnks...rks._Vol._4.pdf

Of course, 19thC publishers produced all kinds of editions, and muddied the waters.

Ah! IMSLP. Every time I go there I get sidetracked. It's like an Aladdin's Cave. I saw the first dozen toccatas in manuscript and then I got waylaid again. smile

But you've settled on La Frescobalda so it's of no matter - I was looking for you. On your behalf, that is, I wasn't expecting to find you there!

Hi Eglantine,
I don't have much time to post today. However, we could post a few things of Donna's today. I have a little correspondence to do. However, I should be about to post in a few hours. I'll be sure to check in first to make sure that I don't duplicate what's already been posted. How does that sound?

Hi guys, I've been away from the computer all day, cooking food and generally having a great day with all my guests.

Some lovely prezzies, including hardbacks of Barenreiter Anna Magdalena Notebook and Henle Little Preludes. Lovely editions.

Sorry Griffin, I think I used 'here' in a way that was confusing. We've been celebrating Donna, and there was even dancing in the living room in the middle of the afternoon.

Richard, I shall look out for that piece. Thanks for the heads up.
(I hadn't thought about the toccatas as I thought they be too challenging for me.)

Elssa, Richard, thanks very much for the Donna Summer posts. It's good to know that others here also appreciated her.

Richard, you may have noticed on 'another thread' that Casinitaly posted yesterday a mammoth congratulations on my birthday, in red caps 48 point bold or summat. Or not (noticed) :-)
In any case, I think we were all affected yesterday by the Pianist Corner Superbug.

Right, the kitchen is once again fit to live in, I've re-booted the 'puter (happens around once a fortnight) and this afternoon I will be looking for and printing out some Frescobaldi that will hopefully serve me for the rest of the term, whilst also listening to some new-to-me Philip Glass.

The two beautiful volumes of Bach (Barenreiter Anna Magdalena notebook, and the Henle Bach Little Preludes) are even better in daylight. The woven covers are in the lightest hue of blue-green. The paper is what you would wish. I'm having to wash my paprika-coated-mitts carefully before touching them.

Otherwise, today I am mainly re-hashing left-over everything (a lot!) and maybe delivering more doggie bags to my lovely and very elderly neighbour, who spent yesterday afternoon round here.

Good morning everyone. A belated Happy Birthday to Eglantine. You were awfully quiet about it. Thanks to Richard for letting us know. I also enjoyed the Sonata Quinta.

My first post for today is the Fugue in G Minor, BWV 542, by Johann Sebastian Bach. It is performed on organ by Anthony Newman.

Wish you a very very happy and healthy birthday, Eglantine (sorry for belated wish!). I noticed the cake yesterday and thought I'd share it later. But you've left nothing today grin
This is for you:

And, as I wanted from Richard also, please consider sharing some of your piano and harp recording with us on this lovely occasion.

Good morning Rupak, I enjoyed the Purcell. Since we seem to be enjoying the Baroque music here is a beautiful guitar rendition of Fuga BWV 1000 by Johann Sebastian Bach. The performance is by Hungarian guitarist Tamás Szekeres.
