I understand the triple counterpoint and the way the voices should form a dialogue in the episodes. At this point the only real analysis I have done is to find my subject and countersubjects and look at where the episodes are. What I haven't done yet is think about the harmony and how the theme can take a different character depending on the key and tonality.

Now I'm thinking you might mean that it's a bit heavy handed where it should be light and playful?

Come on man........help me out. Don't leave me hanging in suspense!!

Yes, but more as if you are its creator. We need to feel Bach's thought through you.

I think I get what you mean.

I look like a typist punching in data. It's a bit mechanical.

I would be grateful if I could have a moment of what Bach thought!

What warts?!? All I saw were some serious biceps! smile Do you work out or is all that from playing piano?

I do think the whole-body shots are good for your website, but you can always do a mixture of both. Save the 'close-ups of the hands' angle for pieces requiring flashy fingering.

I agree with you about the audio... my advice would be to pick up a H2 and edit your tapes. The improvement in sound quality would be well worth the hassle of editing.

Very interesting discussion.

It is sure that the recording makes a mash of things. It is a pity, because I think that your playing is better than it sounds here, Chris.

A remark, that I suspect is along the lines of what Klutz is thinking.

The right hand is constant. It is never more forte, nor more piano. Maybe it is the camera that does that. It gives the impression that there is one principal voice, instead of a fugue wherein the different voices succeed each other in taking up the theme.

But once again it may be the recording that flattens out your right hand.

Also, I find that the rhythmic constancy works to confound the voices.

Bach was a composer of cantatas for the chorale. All of his music is impregnated by this. Playing a fugue, the player must bring to life the entire chorale.

Okay, thanks for the advice guys. I'll work on it.

Will post some more when I have got some better equipment for the audio.

Monica, serous biceps!!???

Must be from lifting all those pint glasses.

Where are these biceps? I'm having trouble seeing them. Must be a technology problem this end.

Composers manufacture a product that is universally deemed superfluous—at least until their music enters public consciousness, at which point people begin to say that they could not live without it.

Chris - This is impressive playing. I keep listening to it over and over again as it's quite compelling. I also read and analyze all of the accompanying comments and then relisten once again to try and understand the comment(s). Regretfully, I don't 'get' or 'understand' all of the comments at this time. In any event, it's an invaluable learning experience for me.

I am also following along in the score as I listen.

I find your piano quite bright, but I like that too; perhaps it's the acoustics of the room interacting with both the camera and the piano itself.

I wish I had more time to practice. Life is already so hectic with every waking moment occupied with ... oh ... school, hockey, volleyball, accompanying two school choirs (and just today adding a jazz choir as well), playing in two school bands, music history and harmony and piano practical lessons, and, what time is left, ... practicing piano. I'm lucky to get in an hour a day - and I actually like practicing now (rather than tolerating it as I have in the past). I also have a lot of friends that have other diverse interests.

Please keep on posting. All the very best!
Respectfully - even with a touch of wistfulness,
Josh
