In this post I give my favorite entries of this week's contest.
Today is going to be a strange day, the first of ptobably a lot to come. In an attempt to fight the spread of the Corona-virus the schools are closed down and people are encouraged to stay at home. My employer has decided that only those who absolutely need to be at the office are allowed to come. And most of my appointments have been canceled because other companies have more or less the same rules the coming weeks. And that means that work has to be done from home, with computer and phone, for as good or as bad as it goes.
The upside is that it saves some traveling time. And I can spend that on pratising organ playing. Or on writing this post.
Other than my own performance there were four entries in the contest this week (up untill now, that is). Two of them are improvisations and two of them playing literature. As much as I admire improvising, the entries with written music were the more interesting to me. So here's my pick for this week:
@contrabourdon's performance of the Andante Tranquillo from Mendelsohn's 3rd Sonata
@jerremyowen9501's performance of BWV 622
My own entry was a personal milestone. For the first time in my life I performed and recorded a movement from one of Bach's Triosonatas. Therefore, a special mention from me for myself... :-)
And for completeness sake, @tormus1958 played an improvisation that deserves mention as well.
An that completes my voting for this week. Let's hope that more people decide to fill the time they gain from all measure taken to hopefully contain the Corona virus with playing the organ and performing an entry for this contest. Would be nice if there were 8 or even 10- contestants.
