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.
“Eleonor Bindman has done a wonderful job for many musicians with her “Brandenburg Duets” project: a transcription of Bach’s Concertos Bach for 4 hands… The result is playfully as fresh and new as authentic and convincing. Balanced in sound, perfectly attuned to each other, the version reveals new sides to these works, and the pianists equally do justice to the solos as well as the tutti with four hands, so that it would be a real pleasure for Bach. The hope is to see the transcription published by 2020 in musical form – it would be a stroke of luck for the four-hand repertoire and its lovers. A wonderful recording.”
