Happy New Year 2013

Clean, crisp performance, fit for the first winter morning of the new year.

Brandenburgische Konzert No.3, G-Dur, Allegro, Johann Sebastian Bach.

Karl Richter, dirigent, mit Muenchner Bach Orchester

When I played this piece, I wondered how the middle development section would end and connect back to the theme in recapitulation. When that happened, it was by brute force, going from g-minor to the original G-Major without any preamble. The composer just did it, so to speak.

I remember chuckling, almost laughing, in admiration of the composer, as I was playing the particular passage. The conductor looked at me like I was crazy.

That video fits well within the overall theme of this blog because it, too, shows what mankind (and womankind) is capable of.

I showed it to my wife hinting at that phenomenal conductor who is conducting and playing that keyboard instrument at the same time - because she always says, men cannot do multitasking. :¬)

She's still not convinced. :¬(

Many thanks, AREVAMIRPAL::LAPRIMAVERA, for the great work you hopefully never get tired doing.

LOL maxli... The conductor also played organ with 5 keyboards and the foot pedals.

Happy new year to all of you, thanks for reading.
