Beautiful! Here's one in return (and yes, it will be best to listen in the evening):
yes, yes,and yes! One of my favorites is "recuerdos de la alhambra" by francisco tarrega-would post a clip, but I am sadly lacking in that area....
The skill level is intimidating.
So much more than just technique at work here. She understands that it is music not something to impress with SPEED!
And a second one, since the first was so brief.
thank you MGB. the first song may have been a bit quick for bedtime though... speaking of bedtime, is your MGB put up for winter? It is spring time here in New Zealand and my MG TD is raring to go.
good choice of tunes and cars. tdtom
I've had a slow leak in the driver front since early spring. It recently decided to get serious about leaking. I need to do something about it before snow (salt) flies around here.
If it's not snowing, it's orange barrel season.
Now I really feel like a turd as a player!
When Your Smiling
for tenor and a soprano saw
In a previous life I was stupid enough to play a Bach prelude in a masterclass held by Leigh Howard Stevens. I knew the instrument I was performing on (Musser 450) was just designed with his input, but I didn't know he had also just finished recording a whole slug of Bach preludes.
It went much better than it might have gone if I'd known he had just recorded the prelude I was playing.
This isn't me and I used a different sticking, but it is the prelude I did for LHS:
I got to ask, how many people in Minnesota can perform on a 4.5 marimba with 4 mallets? Must be a small club. I saw a trio with marimba at the Galleria about 15 years ago play Black Orpheus. Marimba is special for South American Rhythms.
I've had a slow leak in the front for several years now...embarrassing as hall some times....
Fortunately my exhaust is still purring...;D
Brought the wheel in to the shop today. It had a bad valve in the stem, shop replaced it for free. Just in time to re-mount and park for the salty season. I'm kind of curious if the tire I pulled off the shelf to put on while the good rubber was repaired is still holding. It was ancient when I put it away 15 years ago. Spare spares can be handy when a wheel is not normally stocked locally.
There are several at every music department in the state between the faculty and students. Few that have their own marimba though. Once graduated, most don't play again.
That 450 was a BEAST to play. As you go lower the bars get significantly wider and your hand needs to be able to handle the spread. I've got a 4 1/3 octave Yamaha now, which is darned nice too, but a more sensible instrument, even though I seldom play it these days. My daughter is making some use of it for her school music practicing. It's just another thing I don't have time for now. I hope when I get done making a music room I get motivated to play things once in a while that aren't strictly gig related.
She very well could have dropped $15k on that guitar. Or more.
But the hands are what makes it sing.
I can't imagine a talent more deserving of the finest instrument.
Watch this one first to hear it performed well.
This one shows it being done by a nervous type who is mucking with it, but has a lovely view of the physical aspect of the instrument.
