There's some amazing talent in this world! I thought I'd share some that I recently ran into. The first link came from facebook (actually picked up by my son Rommel and shared on his timeline). That led to a bit of searching ... Here are two amazing renditions of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor

You need to see both, so don't lose patience.

I wonder which rendering you preferred? Bach would have totally cracked up on whichever he had seen! Such talent, timing, precision, coordination and one can hardly imagine the hard work and endless practice that produces such perfection.

And to finish off, some jazz, and the linking beauty is that wonderful footwork!

And that bass line is with just her left foot! I wish here that the whole session had been taped, but one enjoys what one gets.

Barbara Dennerlein can be found at her home page here:

In the first two I have no idea who the performers are. I wish the original sharers had thought to acknowledge the artistes. If anyone knows these young people, please do share that info with us by posting a comment here.
