Re: [Harp-L] pretty astonishing

Do you think he would have blown a gasket if the guy producing the session said, " That's very nice Mr. Nadruz but could take it up a third?"

I just found something online that makes my mouth hurt to even THINK about!

Click below to hear the first appearance on a wind instrument of Paganini's "Moto Perpetual," recorded in Brazil in 1956 by chromatic harmonicist Eduardo Nadruz (AKA Edu da Gaita.) It took him 11 years of practice to play all 2400 notes in 3 minutes 20 seconds.

My first reaction:   "How does he DO that?"
After a couple minutes:   "WHY does he do that?"   :)

Astonishing nonetheless.
