Well Jack, I think I'm a bari player, and I do that to warm up before I start playing the hard stuff!









No I don't, and I've only thanked you for posting this thread 'cos the pianist could probably do a good rendition of "Chop Sticks" if she really pushed herself!


Actually, this is a great piece played fantastically!

That is more than superb - it is the kind of performance that makes me despair and ponder the possibility of converting my sax to a plant container or improvised still. I've never even tried to play a bari but in my wildest dreams I could never play with such proficiency. A thoroughly enjoyable and inspirational listen, for which sincere thanks.

Yes, the Czardas seems a popular choice for big instruments to demonstrate virtuosity... very good - unbelievable dexterity.

The double tonguing is elegant. Truly a virtuoso performance. Thanks for posting this.

I am not a baritone player but appreciate this performance. What amazes me that in some of the passages he seems to incorporate other instruments within his sounds. At one point he sounded like a beautiful cello. Regds. N.

Very impressive indeed.

But does anyone actually enjoy listening to this stuff for the music rather than marveling at the skill of the performer.

Bit like all those Youtube videos of kids playing bebop.

I am sure you noticed the a big slice of performance only relates to virtuosity and has nothing to do with music.


What, no applause at the end?!! Stunning.
That is because of the vibrato.
