"These things have been selling out at all the 'stop and go' type marts. They are a fad with the 8 to 14 yr. olds. They sell for anywhere between $7.49 and $11.89 USD. There are now many 'copycat' versions, even some w/ LEDS. A…"

"lol- if it is a dongle for VSL, I hope he's insured it. Looks more like one of those mini baroque drones he used to check his wife wasn't having an affair with Vivaldi."

":-) looks like a security door key to a troubled urban ghetto housing estate, or is it a dongle for Vienna Sound Library?  (either that or I miss it completely, Fred)."

"Sure, lower neck projection and gut strings alone create a much different sound than modern instruments. Interesting, though, that gut strings on a modern instrument do not provide a remarkably different sound. More mellow, to be sure. Those were…"

"Mr Arvanitakis, my vote will go for the guitar rendition. J W's I found it more relaxed and suited to the piece. I felt the violin was a bit 'forced' and I could not relate to that intepretation. Granted, much music appeals to…"

"Thanks Bob for your random thoughts, quite well thought out, I thought. I agree with a lot of what you say, that's why I don’t object to the rest stroke (apoyando) in playing baroque pieces on the guitar. The thing is that I, like you,…"

Bob Porter replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Bach
"Well, we know precious little about Baroque performance techniques. Very little was written about it at the time, much less passed down to us. In the case of Bach's music there is some we don't even know what instrument it was written for.…"

Mike Hewer replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Bach
"I have the Tortelier edited version (found it in a charity shop for £2). Talk about micro managing, nuances in phrasing are marked in with elaborate squiggles and lines. You need to learn a legend  of upturned curves which when used, will…"

Thanks for the invite, Rodney. I was quite impressed by your Sins of the Old Testament pieces. Dance of the Golden  Calf was quite beguiling. I'm currently listening to BelgianComposer's new Double Bass Sonata (http://youtu.be/c4wIy1qyf1E). Check his Youtube channel out. I haven't run across him elsewhere, but his work is consistently first rate. Again, thanks for your work.
