Something completely different

That's his father, I think.  

Finally, I conclude the post with a digitized recording of one of the discs, with permission of the pianist.


  1. Amazing story! Can you imagine the turn of events that brought you two together? The strings of coincidence are knotted strangely.

  2. Whoa, that is really a great story! And a neat recording as well. Thanks for sharing with us!

  3. Wonderful story and turn of events. I believe you made his day and even more. Those recordings are not only a rare find, but a very cherished one if they get back to the artist.

  4. Fantastic - using technology to bring old technology, memories, and personal history together. I think you did a very good thing for that man. Technology is good if it connects people genuinely.

  5. Amazing. Great idea to share a disk - listening as I write :-) They must be a revelation to the older man.

  6. I love the sound of the needle hitting vinyl...the rumble and hiss...anticipating the music to come!

    What a wonderful find and resulting story.

    The tone quality of this piano actually resembles the old pianofortes developed not long after Bach's time. It lends an aura of authenticity to this music.

    Thank you so much for sharing this.

  7. How cool. You did a very good deed!

  8. I'm glad you liked the story. They shipped yesterday. He's flummoxed about how they ended up in Tacoma. My only hypothesis was it had to do with the fort, responsible for a lot of our in-migration.

  9. Imagine his excitement to hear from someone afar who had his old recordings and was so kind as to return it to him after all these years?

    You're a scholar and a gentleman. Brownie points for you, Sir.


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
