(Canned music by RCA!)
recordings were made in the early 90's, using
a Roland MV-30 and a Roland EP7. They frequently
have voicings that are more "fake"
sounding than real, but they also provide excellent
versions of the many instruments actually used
for performances today by REAL MUSICIANS. I
can't imagine what Beethoven or Mozart would've
done with one of these things!
file (I play accordeon)
years ago some very good friends (my old college
buddies) got together and bought me my first
accordeon. It's their fault that I learned how
to play, and I truly have fun with it. Most
of these songs that I have recorded for the
Internet were specifically recorded in fond
remembrance of all those Friday class meetings,
where we'd sing auf Deutsch!
/ Piano voicing (MIDI)
first area of study during my college years
was music. I grew up playing percussion instruments,
and truly enjoy marimba the most! Yep. It's
a keyboard instrument. I learned to play the
piano as well, and can't seem to get Chopin
down just right! Bach, ok. Beethoven, ...
won't do it! Mozart, ... well, my fingers
say NO! So, I "perform" the music
with the synthesizer, resulting in many of
these renditions provided in these pages.
/ Lyrics (Haven't recorded yet!)
titles haven't yet been recorded, but I have
plans to put them online. These are songs
that are MUST-BE-INCLUDED titles, as far as
I'm concerned. It's been a while since I've
recorded, but with the "new look"
to the site, and my "learning" still
going on, I'm getting there!
/ Goodbye Songs
wie ist’s möglich dann
zur guten Nacht
der Saale hellem Strande
der Alm, da gibt’s koa Sünd
dich Gott, es wär zu schön gewesen
Mai ist gekommen
Reise nach Jütland
es, es und es
gibt ein Wirtshaus in der Stadt
ritten drei Reiter zum Tore hinaus
auf! Glück auf!
komm’ bald wieder
ich muß dich lassen
ich einst zur Heimat wieder
Lüfte fühl ich weben
muß ich fort von hier
adé, du mein lieb Heimatland
leb’ wohl, du kleine Gasse
in dem Schneegebirge
meinem Bergli muß ich scheiden
die Zeit ist gekommen
