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

If anyone knows whether there is sheet music for "Ich ruf zu dir mein Herr" 
 in an arrangement for piano please let us know. 
In the meantime I would highly recommend Bernard Glimser's version in an  
arrangement by Busoni.  Truly beautiful:  _Bach-Busoni: "Ich ruf zu Dir"  - 
YouTube_ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=La2MIYSDduY)  This is truly one of 
Bach's most profound Preludes ever.
Another short and well known piece (Sheep May Safely Graze, arranged by  
Petri for piano) played by Yeol Eum Son at the Cliburn 2009 Competition is  
entrancingly beautiful and is posted on Youtube: _Cliburn 2009 Yeol Eum Son  
Final Recital - YouTube_ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNJdjtNxop0)

Thank you for your kind thoughts. Yes Canadians in  general are very nice 
people as are many Americans I have met over time. As  for beer, I could go 
on at length, though I must admit we do have a plethora  of micro-breweries, 
many of which are excellent. BTW there is a great beer not  far from GG's 
country home, Mad Tom's IPA, in Muskoka, Ontario if you enjoy  IPA's.  

Yes, cold at the moment, though our weather report is not  much different 
than that of northern Vermont, New Hampshire and the state of  Maine. 
Admittedly, September and April are the best months to  visit.

Kind regards,

Anita, the score can be found on the website I gave you.  Scroll down to “
Scores”, click on Complete Score, accept their terms and a  new window will 
open with a pdf file that you can print out.
There must be tons of sources for music manuscrpts from  archives, 
libraries, universities etc that are open to the public and  available on the web 
with a few clicks. Lemme find a few for you if you need  some sources. Why 
cough up for sheet music when the stuff is in public  domain anyway ?
What is in this particular score I cannot tell you. Lemme  gat past Louie 
Louie and we shall see...
Ottawa might be nice. You might get to see GG’s chair and  CD 318, plus 
Canadians are very nice, quiet and friendly and the beer is  much better. Just 
don’t go there right now, might be rather cold....maybe in  September, who 
knows ?

Thank you for the information.  I live in South Carolina, the  middle of 
the Deep South, and Ottawa if just a place I dream of  seeing.  I will send a 
message to them, and, hopefully, they might have  that score.

Although perhaps not  the best (is there a best?) place to go, as there are 
many music sites and  one has to look and compare apples with apples, CD 
Universe is certainly  reliable. I've used it a few times myself

Yes, I play piano (poorly  I might add). There is a really nice store in 
the Ottawa area on Bank  Street ... _http://www.ottawafolklore.com/_ 
If you are  not from the Ottawa area they might deliver.
At a quick glance, I could  not find what you are looking for but you 
could, in addition, send them a  request or they might also point you to a site 
where it is  available.

I hope this is of some help.

Kind  regards,

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  

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...
