  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Concerto BWV 1064 - JS Bach

    I thought I would just like to share this wonderful music with you.

    Mostly known in the official Bach version for three Harpsichords and small orchestra, here it is expertly transposed for three violins, which may well be close to its actual original form, before Bach made the Three Harpsichord Concerto of it

    Please enjoy!

    Best wishes from George

    A nice alternate performance from the time when the piano was often viewed as the suitable keyboard for Bach. A wonderful performance to warm the heart!

    I enjoyed listening to that, thanks.
    I understand why classical has a separate room, but rarely think to visit.

    Fortunate for all the lil' fish that your knowledge is available :)

    Dear Still,

    I have the idea of posting other little nuggets of gold from time to time.

    Recordings can be great, because they are a time radar of how things were done over a long time, and also allow for investigating things that are really not often played in concerts these days.

    The gramophone as such really is an important part of Western Art Culture by now.

    Best wishes from George

    I couldn't agree more.
    Whatever you do, please keep posting :)

    Cheers - John

    Geroge J, thanks for posting this!

    I have several versions of these wonderful concertos for 2, 3 & 4 keyboards, BWV 1060-1065, with various instruments. These are most likely my favourite versions:
