    For those who like Bach

    Amazes me to think about the hours of practice that are behind this performance.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    OK I will bite, what performance?
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Incredible! Spellbinding. I think he ran through it a time or two before shooting the video.

    I don't think you have to like Bach to appreciate the work that went into that!

    Amazing!

    What I find would be the most difficult is tuning the instrument. By the time you got done, evaporation could have affected the tuning of the instruments you already tuned!

    Incredible is not a strong enough word for that performance.

    Thanks Toni! Have you ever heard the Canadian Brass perform that movement? The music is the same but the approach by different artists is what makes it interesting. Another is by Wendy Carlos on the Moog Synthesizer.

    Wow. I didn't know there was such a thing as a "glass harp". Thanks for sharing.
