      I'm a big fan of Yann Tiersen, and in fact, I also have a few Philip Glass vinyls on the shelf. There's just something about repetitive, switching runs that makes your brain fill in the gaps. Lately I've been thinking about composing something that is reminiscent of Amélie or The Hours, AND film something to go with it (or maybe the other way around). As luck would have it, I found myself in Paris. Hopefully this track will do these great composers justice. NO tripod, one lens, and a Black Magic Pocket camera, I decided to film five days in Paris - run and gun style - this is on purpose. There are some things I miss: the morning just after the streets were washed, accidentally finding a manicured garden... decorative building after decorative building... I miss you Paris.

        D. Scarlatti's sonata for harpsichord. The original was in G major, but I'm playing it in F major because my harpsichord doesn't go up to a G.

              This is an extraordinary piece composed by J.S. Bach: The Chromatic Fantasy. It's technically and musically very demanding and there are many decisions to be made concerning the liberties taken with the score as it is written. Many pianists argue over how this music (which was written for harpsichord) should be played on a modern piano. I am avoiding that issue altogether as I am approaching this piece as an organist. The pipe organ was my first instrument, and I played many works by Bach (and other Baroque composers) from a very young age. The Chromatic Fantasy feels like one of his organ works, and it has the dramatic arch that calls for all the different sounds and colors that the organ can create, and that the piano and imitate. I'm currently memorizing the companion Fugue that goes with this piece: https://vimeo.com/106839712

                I have been working on an ambitious project since September: play my absolute favorite Scarlatti sonata K. 386 on the chapman stick. The problem was, the piece is already sufficiently difficult on the harpsichord and playing it on the stick would require a lot of time and effort. Nonetheless, I stopped all other music projects I was working on and began arranging the piece for the stick; it took about 3 months I think to play it OK at a very slow tempo. January onwards I began stepping up the tempo to be able to play it OK at its presto tempo. The final product is this video we shot at the Princeton University Chapel.
