Found myself quite fascinated by this. Just happened to stumble upon it. Can’t remember what on earth I was looking for in the first place. It is long but watch it for about five minutes at least. It is a good reminder that true interpretation is not as easy as one might think. It involves reverence for the original writer/composer, taking time to learn, to study and ultimately also involves intelligent and feeling steps of faith. True with regard to music as Leonard Bernstein (most popularly famous for “West Side Story” and a true genius in my estimation, possessed wth the arrogance that sometimes goes with it) demonstrates here with breathtaking brilliance while speaking about the composer Bach and his works. Strikes me though, this would be a good five minutes for every preacher or bible student to watch. There are lessons here that are transferrable to interpretation of Scripture… anyway, this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, I realise that it may bore some of you to tears within seconds… but here it is anyway. Look at it for the above reason… and you may go on and enjoy it for many more reasons!
The Blogger’s Revenge…
Interpretation under Gods command how varied our His pieces.
The simple becomes complicated when there is rhyme without reason.
The complex mind not filled with complexities as often thought but having clarity of the pices to be interpreted .
Gifted for purpose.Purpose of gifting.
Not a loose cannon but a Royal salute tfor the Golry of God.
Utterly beautiful – I have never seen or heard Bach played that before. Thank you.!
