Murray Perahia: Not of this World

Perahia’s now legendary status means that he is often regarded as someone who is somewhat removed from normal life – which corresponds to the title of the documentary “Not of this world”. But it is only Perahia’s playing, with its otherworldly beauty, that seems to be beyond all earthly limitations. As this film shows, the artist engages in all facets of life as well as his work.

Fantastic... very creative contrapuntal conversations interwoven throughout the composition. Your harmonic language and understanding is deep... thanks for sharing. Needs to be performed live to be truly appreciated.

I don't usually like traditional fugues but I like this one. It has plenty of spontaneous energy and life, as if it wants to burst out of its form, especially towards the end.

Thanks so much, Nick.  I've been so busy in the writing lately, i haven't got round to recording my latest batch, but will soon. (Hopefully my manipulation of dynamics, articulation, etc, gives the listener a strong enough impression..)
Thank you for listening and your kind words.

Ted, thank you for giving this a whirl. It is heartening to me that one who is not so predisposed to liking fugues found this musical.  It is indeed trying to burst - or at least shake off some of the traditional treatment, (mostly  in service to the emotional 'line') .. Im glad its sense of spontaneity came off! I appreciate your enthusiastic response:)
