Bach's Prelude No. 4 in D MajorWelcome to the first in a series of house concerts at the home of CP and Poor George. Guest performers are welcome.
One of my few idyllic childhood family memories is of participating in house concerts put on by my father and his musician friends. Various musicians would gather at one of their homes and play for each other. Charming and civilized way to spend a Sunday afternoon, and so much more productive than inter-sibling fistfights or random emotional outbursts.
My piano, which I love for its action, sounds rather brassy in our new apartment space, and so we need to figure out a way to muffle it a bit. My brother-in-law did the handy camera work on this first round, and we will continue to strive for ways to improve the sound quality for your listening "pleasure."
Bach has always been my first love, musically. I recently learned this little ditty at Poor George's request. It's deceptively complicated, but I am charmed by the repeated question and answer between the right and left hands.
I haven't been playing much for the past few years, and have fallen back into some bad habits which this video reminds me to correct.
Remember, Glenn Gould he ain't, but we can always dream.
Thanks to Pink Fluffy Slippers over at Cello Et Cetera for inspiring me to post videos of my music.
