    Bach's 327th birthday anniversary

    Hi everyone,

    Please accept my humble contribution to J.S.Bach's 327th birthday anniversary (today), by playing his eternal Pastorale BWV590.
    Organ is the Jorgensen tribute one for Hauptwerk 4.

    Here's the link :


    http://www.panosvirtual.org/Music/PastoraleBWV590.mp3

    Info on how this piece is recorded :

    Playing live on Yamaha EL-90 2m/p console (controller) with EMU-X-Midi to USB device to Acer laptop.
    Hauptwerk 4 as VSTi link with Reaper 4 where convolution reverb (Cathedral) added.
    .wav file recording, then to .mp3 at 320 kb/s.

    Please enjoy.
    Best
    Panos

    Hi Panos,

    Nice job on BWV 590, braddah...
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Hi all!

    Errr... There's a little problem... Bach wasn't born today...
    If you read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Sebastian_Bach you may read "Johann Sebastian Bach[1] (21 March 1685, O.S.31 March 1685, N.S. – (...)"

    Now ik you click on "O.S." or in "N.S." you'll get the explanation. The gregorian calendar has been instituted around this time and substituted the julian calendar. According to the Julian calendar, Bach was born on 21 March which is the equivalent to our calendar's 31st March.
    So, Bach's birthday will be in 10 days from now.

    The interpretation is great! Congratulations!

    Here is my contribution: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDfGS1P2lNk
    It has lots of mistakes because I'm not used to play on a real pipe organ. I don't play on a pipe organ more than three times a year and electronic organ sucks (sound is repugnant among other things)

    Thanks, Panos for sharing this wonderful Bach piece. It's one of my favorites of the quieter pieces.

    Good catch. However, and looking at the issue more loosely, Bach could be considered as the spring of music in some ways, so celebrating his birthday on the (astronomical) starting day of spring is a compromise I can live with.

    @ Lars : Thank you very much my friend , glad you liked :-)

    @ Lombardo : Hey, long time no... talk :-D
    I will insist on 21st, firstly because then they knew it was the 21st, secondly because is the triple 7 (21=3x7) and thirdly because it's the first day of Aries.
    If we start converting dates with the Gregorian calendar we're gonna loose the base on many many historic personalities :-)

    Anyway many thanks for your kind words on 590 :-) and I really enjoyed your video ! being two contributions to this thread counts plus ! I wish there were more.

    @ pb05 : agreed !! :-)

    Well, it's just a date. The most important thing that Bach gave us wasn't his birthday date but his music. That's what realy matters.

    I don't have much time to participate more on this forum. Sometimes I read the threads but I don't participate as much as I would like. I'll try to be more active.

    Ahem, now I am on a non-speechless computer (meaning that it has sound output) and I can appreciate this beautiful interpretation. Thanks for sharing!

    @Bill. Thank you my friend :-) I tried to sound like being on an original. I know this is not the electronic/digital pages, but is not possible for me to do as you posted on your video. Just 15 pipe organs in the whole country, islands included. By the way thanks also for this. Very good sound !! and he plays the finale with passion !

    @ Teddy. Thanks :-) there's nothing to be jealous about my friend. Ask my wife about her patience hearing me practising again and again all over.... :-D
