Tools of the Trade

My cousin says I don't talk about my music enough. This last photo is from a page of a Bach Solo Sonata, the Adagio from the first Sonata in g minor, and is a facsimile of the autograph manuscript. At the very bottom in the lower right corner are two 128th notes. Bach and Beethoven are the only two composers that I know of that actually wrote 128th notes. Of course, I am not familiar with all of the piano music.

  1. Beautiful violin. Makes me want to pick up an instrument again, just to feel the wood.
