English Suites  BWV 806-811 - piano - (HN 100)
English Suites BWV 806-811 - piano - (HN 100)
by Johann Sebastian Bach
Edition: Sheet music
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A very usable edition, 17 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An urtext edition with the addition of good fingering is always helpful. Clear printing on Henle's cream paper is just so easy to read; I hope the house is never persuaded to print on white. There is a short, but nonetheless useful, textual commentary at the end, for those who find that of interest. Recommended without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for sticking paper to paper, 17 Oct. 2015

This is a very good product for sticking paper on to paper without undue wetting or crinkling.
If you are using it for multiple sticking, have plenty of newspaper to provide a clean surface and be aware that the spray does spread further than you might wish.


Retracing a Winter's Journey: Schubert's "Winterreise"

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any Winterreise performer or scholar, 17 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Susan Youens is a wonderful scholar: her knowledge is encyclopaedic and her enthusiasm for the subject shines through.
The prose is fluent: easy to read and easy to understand. The three introductory chapters which give an overview of the Genesis, Texts and Music of Winterreise are followed by twenty-four discrete chapters devoted to the individual songs. These chapters are a very useful 'go to' resource for useful information about each song. I would recommend this book and point out that there is a much less costly alternative paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy solution to connect Digital TV output to non Digital amplifier, 17 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for a not v technical friend to get an analogue audio feed from a television.
He installed it without difficulty and it was working within minutes.
It has to be excellent value for money.
NB You do need to provide your own USB power supply
but at this price that is an observation - not a complaint.

Luatner
Luatner
by Barbara-Ann Campbell-Lange
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational pictures of Lautner Houses, 17 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Luatner (Paperback)
This is an excellent monograph. If you have happened upon a picture of a Lautner house and want to discover more this is an ideal starting point. A motel and nineteen wonderful aspirational (futuristic even in 2015) living spaces created for the Californian landscape and climate are presented in this slim volume. A useful introductory essay is followed by many photographs and at least a site plan for the selected projects to enable the reader to enjoy and understand each building. My regret is that the Hope House recently used by LV for a fashion show is not included - but that is well-documented elsewhere. The usual Taschen high production values and incredible value for money are present in this book.

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent images of Meier's buildings, 16 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you enjoy the clean architectural style of Richard Meier and like to admire his buildings, you will love this book. Over fifty examples of his work are presented together with layouts, site plans and short introductions in English, German and French. An introductory essay gives background, context and philosophy. Hundreds of beautiful photographs of some breathtaking buildings in a high quality book - and at the very tempting price we expect from Taschen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A useful and sound edition, 16 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent modern edition with very helpful fingering at a very reasonable price. It is a good score including the compound time variant of the first Invention. All the editorial additions are clearly marked. Clear advice is given on how the ornaments should be executed is given in the score. For those with a deeper interest in performance practice there is a more detailed preface covering History, Style and Interpretation together with more specific advice on each piece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart-wrenching, 16 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Go Set a Watchman (Kindle Edition)
I did take my headline from another reviewer. When I saw it I knew it was exactly how I felt whilst reading Go Set A Watchman.
This is not the comfortable continuation of the 'To Kill a Mockingbird' story that, perhaps, we anticipated or hoped for when the existence of this novel was revealed last year. Nonetheless it is extremely engaging. TKMB is a story full of wonder ending with this sense of warmth and security that a watchful eye had been 'looking out' for the children all their lives. Some years later the heightening awareness of the repression of the black Americans changes the climate of the time in which 'Go Set A Watchman' is set. The concluding pages of GSAW promise a much more troubled future.
Prior knowledge of the characters and the location are important. After my initial reading I am not totally convinced that the Atticus character has the same attributes that he displays in TKMB. And why should he? The characters in TKMB are a development or refinement of the characters in this novel. We are led to believe that TKMB was intended to be a discrete novel inspired by this earlier manuscript.
Harper Lee's style of writing is effortless to read aided by the short chapters. Admittedly it does demand more concentration to follow some of the exchanges between Jean Louise and Dr Finch. I found an interesting parallel between Dr Finch and Mr Arthur in TKMB. I liked the way in which Harper Lee provides a protector for her narrator in both novels.
I was pleased that this earlier manuscript which provides a continuation of the TKMB plot has not spoilt or tarnished my feelings for TKMB.
Only someone who has never read TKMB can fully assess how well this stands on its own. It certainly addresses some other themes which are current today such as sexual abuse of children and the issues faced by girls coming in to puberty. It is not without its lighter moments and you will laugh as well as cry.


Piers Lane Goes To Town [Piers Lane] [Hyperion: CDA67967]
Piers Lane Goes To Town [Piers Lane] [Hyperion: CDA67967]
Price: £12.33

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning in every way, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This recording delights from the first to last note. Piers Lane applies his consummate technique to the service of these piano gems. Effortless sparkle, warm rich tone and an endless variety of colour captured in a wonderful recording. A wonderful recording as in the performances and also the piano sound: this must be of demonstration quality - so effortlessly natural: it is as if you are in the same room. I am always resistant to being told you must have, listen to or read this or that, but anyone with a love of the piano must have this recording: it would make a perfect gift.
