Glenn Gould and Bach

Here are two YT videos which might be interesting for friends of Gould and those who want to get to know his understanding of J. S. Bach's music:

This is a CBC TV production from the 60s in which Gould gives a short but precise introduction to Bach's music and his position as a composer who was

"misunderstood, but certainly not because he was years ahead of his time but generations behind it."

In this video, Gould gives an (rather monological :) ) interview to the well-known director Bruno Monsaingeon, who made also films with Menuhin etc . Their conversation's topic are Bach's fugues (but not only those from the "Kunst der Fuge", as the title might pretend). Gould briefly analyses and performes e.g. BWV 878 (E major) and BWV 891 (Bb minor).

Enjoy!

Please don't post "Please look at my new piece!" here. Just post your piece here, and we'll all see it!

Yes, this group is here precisely so that others can look at your new piece. Posting your piece here accomplishes exactly that; no "advertisement" among the discussions is necessary, and as more and more "ads for posted pieces" are posted, the value in the discussion page becomes harder and harder to find.  I suspect no one on the verge of doing so will read this, but I can try. 

EMBOCADURA

Hola soy principiante en sax alto, apenas tengo unos 3 meses, y por fin pude tocar una melodia completa con pocos desafines, uso una embocadora metalica no. 7 y una caña de plastico no. 2, es con lo que mejor me he acoplado, me cuesta mucho trabajo llegar a las notas altas a partir de la, si, do y re, y tambien batallo para que me alcance el aire en las notas bajas como do, si alguen me puede aconsejar para mejorar se los agradecere.

Hellohelloohellooo

My name is Caroline and I just joined! A bit about me:

David Bowie is my favorite singer
Queen and Guns n' Roses are my favorite bands
I love cats :3 
I play piano and an eensy weensy bit of guitar
My biggest pet peeves are my siblings and when someone steps on the back of my shoe and doesn't apologize
I love to read, write, draw, and sing
I only listen to Rock music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. The only Pop I listen to is Michael Jackson and Prince, NEVER modern pop :P

I hope to meet some new people here and I'm super excited to be a part of this group! Toodles!
