Glenn Gould Video - J.S. Bach Partita No. 2 in C Minor

Glenn Gould.
What he was to the piano is unmatched.
Just watching this video
of this most accomplished pianist is beyond words.
He is totally engrossed.
It's just Mr. Gould's fingers.
It's his whole body.
Yes, a pianist's whole person is involved
when playing the piano.

Here it is:
Glenn Gould plays
the J.S. Bach Partita No. 2 in C Minor.

Gift Idea: Beethoven Mousepads

Here's a great gift for your musician friend
or the classical music lover:
Beethoven Mousepads!

OK, maybe you want it for yourself!
Either way
I thought these mousepads
that feature the Great Ludwig Van Beethoven
to be just wonderful.

Stay tuned,
because at Little Piano House
we hope to not only offer information
about affordable piano lessons
in the Detroit/Downriver area,
but great gift ideas such as this.

Enjoy!

Fur Elise by Beethoven - Piano Solo - Video

Here's an absolutely wonderful video
I found on youtube.
The pianist
is a nine-year-old girl
playing Beethoven's Fur Elise.

As you may know,
Ludwig V. Beethoven had piano students.
One student did particularly well in her studies,
and so,
Beethoven rewarded her with an original composition.
And thus,
we have "Fur Elise" (For Elizabeth).

I hope for great things
for the child in this video!

The music for Fur Elise
can be found here.

Enjoy!

Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag - A Video of a Very Creative Pianist

This video
shows a very creative pianist
as he interprets Scott Joplin's
Maple Leaf Rag.
He's got the cover off
so you can see the piano's hammers in action.

OK,
truth be told,
I just love Ragtime Music
and this musician's creativity
just inspires me.
Enjoy!

Johann Sebastian Bach's Brandenburg Concertos #3 - Video

This pianist is amazing!
This is one of my all-time favorite pieces,
composed by the master himself,
Johann Sebastian Bach.
This the Brandenburg Concerto's #3
for 8 hands (4 pianos!).
This video is of the same pianist
who creatively plays
and then splices the video together.
Enjoy!

and appreciate their little prodigy!
