I have great fun interacting with composers gone by. I thought it might be fun to share and hope some of you think of the same sort of things.

Me: "Goodmorning Johann."

Bach: "Goodmorning Leisle. Let me hear you play Prelude 6 in D-minor from Book 1 of the Well Tempered Clavichord........"

Bach: "Perfectly.. or you know what the punishment will be".

Me (to myself): "I hope he doesn't make me play the organ."

Bach: "On the harpsichord, please. Slow and steady with even tempo in both hands".

Me: lalalalalalalala (music playing)

Bach: "Liesle: That was not good enough. I would like to hear great closure in your ending chords. I would like you to build the melodies into a crashing, ascending crescendo at the final measure".

Me: lalalalalalalal (music playing)

Bach: "I am afraid I am going to ask you to play the piece, measure by measure, 5 times each, each time getting louder and faster, proceeding backwards from the ending to the beginning, on the organ. I will come back to you when you have finished".

Me: "Johann! Please no! Not five times. That is too much for me".

Bach: "Liesle! Practice! One day you will be able to do it".

Wait. I was going to post a reply, really. It's just that last night, I got distracted... \:D

So, is this a new thing, this talking to deceased composers?

Maybe some of us (ok, I) didn't know what to make of your post. I didn't want to embarrass myself with an inappropriate response despite the fact that I liked it. Sort of a departure from the typical posts seen here.
