This is interesting.

If it's true.  It sounds like reality though.

And it is true?

This might be what was broadcast?




There are more isolated track performances like that out there.  It makes me wonder if the instrument is the whole set up --  human-mic-processing, etc.  -- and this is just hearing the tiny, frail human part of it.

That would be interesting (if it's even actually possible) to see some kind of concert or recital where you learn at the end that all the different performers were actually the same person.

Similar to this guy...

Oh man.  ::)



I'm trying to find why this thing was created.


Found something.

So if you perform poorly enough, you get called out and have to explain yourself.  Haha.

k. Hmm hard to say really I just sorta know and feel it on this one.  What is it about a certain color or smell that grabs you.  Or your favorite dish.  Yeah like that.  There is so much to like about this but yet I have trouble describing why .  I just listened and shortly in immediately knew that I love it .  ? ;)

Yes, I was curious since mine was unmoved.  She has a certain spunkiness, not afraid to hit those keys, that's about all I can drum up.  But do enjoy your time of Haydn. ;)

that's awesome.

You might be interested in researching and listening to Leginska. She was a good composer too, I collected some of her scores last year. Quite wonderful really.

That's marvellous, too, and randomly (!!!), without having read your posting here about Leginska before, I have just linked a short vid of one of her students, in the "ART TATUM"- Thread!

 :D :D That's really an amazing coincidence!! Thank you very much for the Leginska-Raindrops!

That doesn't commonly surface on my consciousness or bother me, typically i'm preoccupied with the overall structure when i'm giving all my attention to listening. And some of his writing doesn't always have a thematically unique character. But then again, given how much he wrote....

Right now I have the StJohn passion going. Nice to wake up to, but i need to continue on with work and probably will put on something less catchy and incomprehensible so i don't get distracted. Ockeghem sounds fine right about now.

That's something that needs a better quality recording.

Tonewise, those sound kind of... loose/clunky.  It's like in between a guitar and piano tone.  I guess I'd have to get used to it more.  It's not quite what I thought they sounded like.  But the next video has the same tone.

Hi Bob,

yes, you are certainly right. But what I additionally remember, is, that the cimbalom, at which we had a short glance in the above linked video, can be a very interesting accompanying-instrument, too!

In, e.g.,  Hungarian and Gypsy-music, when people gather in more or less formal or informal groups to play music, we meet the cimbalom often as background- or accompanying instrument.

Years ago I came across Sandor Lakatos via YT, who was a member of a distinguished family of "devilish" (in the most positive sense) violin-virtuosos. The best of the best of them, leading small groups of musicians, or being marvellous solo-violinists, gain the title of a "Primas". As did Sandor Lakatos, who was - subjectively, of course, and personally for me - the best violin virtuoso I ever heard. I prefer him even to Roby Lakatos, (addition: who can be heard and seen here, and a cimbalom, too: => http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUZVCNIjHqU ) , to Menuhin, Heifetz, Suk, Kennedy and Garrett (both of which I like very much, too), Szeryngk (whom I heard many years ago in a TV-recording), Milstein, and whoever is out there.

In Sandor Lakatos' group there can be heard - and seen - the cimbalom as accompanying instrument. As follows. Beware, friends...!! Here comes: Sandor Lakatos!  :D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn9iOMGc6U8

(Cimbalom at ca. 1:02 and 2:22)

__

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG_MIk61WTw

(Cimbalom at ca. 1:58).

Cordial greetings from 8_octaves!

Very interesting choice of Chopin, 8O!
And I'm also happy that more people are listening to Paul Barton (but then, you may well have been listening to him longer than I).
