i just heard a christopher parkening recording of Simple Gifts, this traditional hymn i think, that was used by aaron copland in appalachian spring (i think). ahh, its just so brilliant. one moment theres soft harmonics, then bright ponticello, then sweet tone...

and the part he goes from drop D tuning to DROP C tuning in the middle of the piece!!!!!!

that left me in shock for a while.

and ends with soft gentle artificial harmonics.


rawr i want the score lol.
