I learn more each time I view it, and often come to tears in meeting such brilliance. Downloaded a copy long ago lest it disappear. So glad it touched you too, Sue, and would definitely recommend exploring what it has to offer through repeated attentive listening and viewings. The word extraordinary has been so overused as to lose much of its power but this may assist you in reclaiming its meaning.
Makes me wish I had a pipe organ I could play with.
The skillful playing and inspired video can serve to lift the attentive listener/viewer well beyond the quotidian. Happy trails. my friend. 🙂
Great! It’s like seeing into the mind of the composer…
Genius at work. 😀
Ethel and I went to listen to Hans Christian, the cellist, last night in Fish Creek, Wisconsin. Ah, music!
Heaven on earth. I am wrapping myself up in Carnatic percussion at present and travelling to regions only drummers know until you consent to be still and follow where they lead.
The visual effects of sound guiding us listening along our way.
This is a video I watch over and over.
I would like the repetition. It has a way of taking you away.
Always the same and yet new and different. The playing and the skillful video match the skill of the composition. Homage. (Or “Respect” as these young folk say.)
