The Last Word

Just before I return to normal life, and start walking dogs and vacuuming again;

you must perservere for 40 seconds and then, perhaps, your jaw will drop open, as mine did, in awe of what the human mind is capable of...

Somehow, to see those notes cascading like a great waterfall is very moving.

Neat. It reminds me of when I once turned pages for a great pianist, Claude Frank, who was playing a Beethoven Violin & Piano Sonata with his daughter and I saw a downward swash of 16th notes coming up on the page and suddenly a tremendous avalanche of sound came roaring down the keyboard and I realized most vividly how the notes on the page are not the music at all but must be understood and given meaning by the performer. --Virginia

What a marvelous way to read along the notes, so animated to the music!

I love this! The musician creating the music instead of reading the music.

That is fabulous. I've listened to this so many times, but I've never watched it before. Science and art duetting!

A revelation, though it makes me feel slightly giddy!
