  1. Thanks for this great series on one of my favorite Bartók pieces, John! What's next? By the way, check in to my blog later this afternoon; I'm doing a post on Martin Luther's famous Christmas hymn "Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland" and the two great Bach chorale cantatas inspired by it.

    1. Hi Roy: Glad you enjoyed it! I'm planning on a Satie series in December, & then Zoe Keating in January. Will definitely check out your new post today--thanks!

    2. Satie? Great! I'm getting into playing him a lot at the moment: especially his 'Prelude on a Helmet'. He was great on titles.
