Boomwhackers! Love them because they are so much fun to play. The choreography of those guys is also incredible. I was surprised to see them turning pages because I was sure they had to have memorized all of the piece and the choreo.
That was pretty cool.
It didn’t sound like any Bach I’ve ever heard, but it certainly was fun.
Oh, that’s amazing. Quite pleasant to listen to, too!
Lady Anne, I know that piece, because it is the only thing I can play on the piano! It’s the Prelude (without its following fugue) in C major, from the Well-Tempered Clavier. One note at a time except for the chord at the end, and no key signature to remember. For an adult beginner it beat the heck out of “Twinkle twinkle little star”!
“Well tempered” means well tuned. At the time, some keyboard instruments were only kept tuned in a couple of keys. The other strings were ignored. Bach wrote a prelude & fugue in each key, to show that one should tune every string. As usual for that genius, they are all lovely.
I wish I had worked hard enough to really learn the piano. I would love to be able to play the harpsichord solo from Brandenburg Concerto #5! Here is late, great Glenn Gould playing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OwOpD9Q4o8 The solo starts at about 7:38.
