Re[4]: Goldberg opinion

     You know, I am also a low brass player and although I don't 
     play those instruments as much now as the piano, I played 
     them a lot in college and grad school.  And so of course 
     that introduced me to the so-called cello suites, originally 
     written for whatever-that-thing-is.  I'm sure you've spent a 
     lot of time playing those.  Those are ultra-cool, that's for 
     mw  :-)

`Followed by two minuets and a gigue that is a pleasure to play'....
I envy you! I don't play the piano (not from choice, I assure you), I play 
the cello; so the closest I can get to Gould is playing the cello part in 
the orchestral accompaniment along with his CDs. (Wouldn't Gould love that 
- I, live, accompany him playing Bach thirty-nine years ago via digitally 
remastered electronic recording in my living room. I'm taking his theory 
that recording allows the performer to interact with a listener one on one 
a step further: not only am I a listener, I'm performing back to him.)
I'm interested in knowing: how many of you are piano players? How many of 
you are musicians, but on another instrument, like me?
