On one of his all-new-material annual tours he even played, virtuosically
, at speed, "Tico Tico" on steel pan, which he had learned to make in Trinidad, filming the process for instructional purposes.
As the actions and interactions accumulate, the play becomes a metaphor for itself, a virtuosically
self-enclosed theatrical event like Waiting for Godot or Endgame - and equally bleak philosophically.
But as luck would have it, a contemporary did in fact virtuosically
misread the early version of this piece: the well-known copy of the C minor overture from the library of Dortmund organist Johann Gottlieb Preller (1727-86) is, quite simply, a mess.
With "Everything for You , Otegem," De Cock virtuosically
exchanged material mass and spatial expanse for material multitude and spatial reiteration.
The scarifyin' title track adds interesting shades of noir, and the whole package feels cutting edge and virtuosically
traditional with every flash-picked chord.
The lower auxiliary note to harmonic 8 is found in The Yorkshire Feast Song, Dioclesian (both 1690) and The Fairy-Queen (1692), but its only subsequent appearances are in the The Libertine and The Indian Queen-in the latter the non-harmonic pitch is virtuosically
approached by leap from natural harmonic 9-and other English composers employed it rarely in later music.
A Jean Langlais trio excitingly puts player and organ (the superb and almost tonally unchanged 1887 Father Willis) through their paces, the virtuosically
brilliant Incantation pour un jour Saint and Fete framing the quietly timeless Chant de Paix.
Some scenes seem almost virtuosically

After the malicious scherzo, sleekly, virtuosically
