How often does our music look like a mess, with dozens of pencil scribbles which are hard to pay attention to? Instead of marking up a score with many stages of annotations and corrections, I use these colorful Post-it stickers. The clear part goes right over the notes and is perfect for fingerings and other short ideas to jot down. The colorful part draws your attention so you can’t miss it, which is perfect for “current” mistakes. Once the issue is corrected, take the sticker off and the score is much cleaner! In the photo, I made a note to pay attention to a modulation into E minor and to arpeggiate a chord when repeating a section of a Bach Partita.
The Six Solo Cello Suites are some of the most celebrated and much-loved works in the classical repertoire, and they continue to fascinate and inspire performers and audiences alike. In this brand new transcription for solo piano, Eleonor Bindman pays tribute to this music’s enduring allure. … The transcription offers scope for some adventurous interpretation, particularly in the wonderfully playful pairs of Minuets, Bourrées and Gavottes. … Like the works included in her ‘Stepping Stones to Bach’, Eleonor has provided pianists with yet more repertoire to explore, and her elegantly, meticulous transcriptions shine a new light on this wonderful music while also remaining true to the original.
