Absolutely stunning - what a Gal...

Ever since Scrobs and his dear sister used to play the piano with both feet on the pedals to make an odd sound (the organ, we called it), the sight of an expert in full flow is still such an exquisite pleasure, and this fits the bill because I just love all the chord sequences, the passion and also, the chat and the smiles half-way through!

Sophie is just an amzing perfectionist! Volume up high everyone, it's a real treat!

Just listened to this and doesn't it make the hairs on your arms stand up! In my late teens and later on I played the piano and got to Grade 7 and loved doing the Beethoven's Moonlight and Pathetique sonatas. When I visited my childhood friend for a chat or whatever, a friend of my dad lived next door and he used to let me have a go on his organ (don't say another word) and although all the keys were in the right places as per, there were these little pull-out jobbies with funny names that fascinated me. I'd play hymns from a book he had, but then to play Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor was something else! To have heard it in some sort of amphitheatre like a big hall or church would have just blown my mind! Some of the usual wedding entrances or exits could never sound the same on the piano. Whilst walking around Marlowe on my 70th birthday and chatting to a local who was on her lunch break, she said to go into a small church nearby, so we did only to find an organist re-tuning their organ. What a lovely chat we had, but the glorious sound that echoed from every beamed ceiling, wall and floor just made your head ring with such joy!
