After Nancy Bach-Hertzog and her piano students performed a medley from various holiday pieces in the White House in Washington, D.C., I asked Nancy whether she and her students would do such a thing with works of Johann Sebastian Bach for me and this website. She agreed and after many weeks of practicing, videotaping and editing a work of art came out, that now is a model for this whole section of my website. Can it get better than this: kids play Bach, educated by a family member of the Bach Family of Musicians from Thuringia, for a Bach website, designed by a guy with the name of Bach ( ... I ) and finally it's edited by a professional videographer, Jeff Bach Carpenter, who is a descendant of ancestor Veit Bach in Wechmar as well.
I am very proud, to present an artist from New York City here. I met Crista Kende yesterday via Skype. With her I will cooperate and have fun spreading Bach's work all over the world in the oncoming months. What a coincidence!
Here is the space for you: for many artists around the theme of Bach. The age restrictions are from 3 years up to one hundred years. And if you apply I don't care if you are beyond the 100 years old. Here I want to present cool performances related to Johann Sebastian Bach. It doesn't count whether it's just a perfect performance or whether it's something like an experiment related to Bach. Whether your class is creating a cool homepage together with your teacher or whether you do a painting, which is a homage to the Court Composer - if it's nice, I display it here.
However: it has to be in the approach of Johann Sebastian Bach. and he - was a perfectionist. And that is? It must have been created with heart and soul. It has to reflect effort. It has to be an idea coming true. The presentation of the "Easter Oratorio" is not enough, when the video is blurred, fuzzy, just undedicated. Just the piece alone doesn't differ from hundreds pieces of that name on the CDs all over the world. A Bach website or a video would.
That is the same for pictures: just a snapshot - that wouldn't do. Everybody has a smartphone today to take good photos. Check on the background. make 100 photos. Send the best, that is what gets you on this page, right on the Bach stage of this Bach website.
