[f_minor] Ich ruf zu dir mein Herr..../Voyager

Hi Anita, et all

Here is the score:

Due to the fact that most classical compositions are (still*) in the Public Domain there is no problem in obtaining scores for these works, in some cases and if available even original manuscripts.

There should be many sources out there, including various Bach archives, sources like archive.org and whatnot. I can only play Louie Louie so this is yet not useful for me but if anyone requires more sites the lemme know.

*The current US administration would like to change that for some works and also wants to extend copyright in terms of lifetime plus actual protection of works in and out of Public Domain. Be afraid, be very afraid if they pull that one....

Karl,  Many thanks.  I ordered, and learned about "CD Universe".  Now I'm going to try to track down the score.  Are you a pianist?  Do you know, by any chance, where it is available.   

Best regards and thanks,

  Anita, Pat

  I've owned this recording for about 2-3yrs and must have played it 100 times.

  Without going into details, I think every track on this CD is worth listening to.


  Kind regards,

    This is awesome, and I don't use that term lightly.  Do you know if this recording by Murray Perahia is available on the market?  I've played this about twenty times and can't get enough of it.

    Many, many thanks,

    PS  Forget what I wrote about not buy anything.  (-:

      Great find!

      Although not played by GG, Murray Perahia is certainly no slouch and has been a Bach fan of mine for some years. I was lucky enough to meet him after a concert given here in Ottawa two years ago.

      Makes you wonder what GG would have done with this piece of music, could he have possibly played it at an even slower tempo or perhaps twice as fast?

      Although we'll never know, one thing you can be certain of, his recording would have been, as with so many of his other recordings ...  Gouldian.

      Kind regards,

        Dear all

        Some weeks ago someone here wanted to know if a recording of the cantata Ich ruf zu dir mein Herr Jesus Christ by Johannn Sebastian Bach was ever recorded by Glenn Gould. 

        Well, it wasn’t but by sheer coincidence I found another recording and with this one I can kill two birds with one stone.

        First you get a piano recording of said cantata plus you get info on the NASA Voyager mission plus absolutely stunning images : 


        If you are new to the GG universe, there is a connection to GG and the Voyager mission. Apart from being one of the most spectacular missions NASA ever did, this spacecraft  also contains a recording of parts of the WTC1 as recorded by GG (amongst other stuff), just in case this spacecraft might one day be found by Little Green Men far, far, very far away...
