  Jeff Clavier's Software Only
My friend and European VC blogger Fred Destin made an amusing comment in one of his blog entries: Jeff Clavier has left the building, following a discussion I had had with Rick Segal at StartupCamp in the midst of the three sessions I led that day.
I basically told Rick that I was in need of recapturing part of my life/time and blogging - both reading and writing - had been the elected victim.
Feel free to point them to me (but he, not too many please) and as usual, happy to meet at any of these events - just email me at jeff [dot] clavier [at] gmail [dot] com.

 Encyclopedia: Well-Tempered Clavier   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In the German of Bach's time the "Clavier" was a generic name meaning "keyboard instrument," most typically the harpsichord or clavichord--but not excluding the organ, either.
The Well-Tempered Clavier is a major work of music, of great breadth and depth and musical, aesthetic, and psychological diversity and complexity, that demonstrated, both technically and through its greatness, the musical potential of circular temperaments.
In addition to its use of all keys, the Well-Tempered Clavier was unusual in the very wide range of techniques and modes of expression used by Bach in the fugues.

 Well-Tempered Clavier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Well-Tempered Clavier (Das wohltemperierte Clavier, "Clavier" meaning keyboard instrument) is a collection of solo keyboard music composed by Johann Sebastian Bach.
The C sharp major prelude and fugue in book one was originally in C major - Bach added a key signature of seven sharps and adjusted some accidentals to convert it into the required key.
During much of the 20th century it was assumed that Bach wanted equal temperament, which had been described by theorists and musicians for at least a century before Bach's birth.

 Christian Clavier @ Filmbug
Clavier began his performing career as part of a successful theatre troupe known as Le Splendid.
Clavier is very well known in Europe for starring in a string of enormously successful comedies he co-wrote with director Jean-Marie Poire.
Clavier most recently starred with Gerard Depardieu and Roberto Benigni in director Claude Zidi's Asterix et Obelix contre Cesar, a comedy set in the time of the Roman Empire.

 Clavier Music 1992 - Stockhausen Talks About The Piano
The development of clavier music, which is about four hundred years old, appears something like this: beginning from the harpsichord and clavichord, it develops through the Kielflügel, Hammerklavier, fortepiano, and modern piano, to the synthesizer – and apparently will continue as long as people have ten fingers.
I believe that the time in which these clavier pieces appeared had a very special spirit, which is irretrievable and also unrepeatable.
These pieces will be interpreted as a withdrawal to the essential, after enormously excessive emotional piano music, as drawings in the air of vibrations, as a retraction of all subjective burdens, psychological emotionality; as a new listening into the interior of vibrations, a recollecting of figures, and listening into the silence.

 On "Peter Quince at the Clavier"
As in a dream, time and space are eclipsed, and as the poem moves back and forth in time, the two events of the poem (Quince at the clavier and Susanna and the elders in the garden) seem to occur simultaneously.
In its deep structures, the myth itself is grounded in sexuality, betrayal, and death, while the manifest imagery consists of varied symbols: the clavier, the garden, the woman, and the portal.
His most convincing expression of sexual desire, though, is in "Peter Quince at the Clavier," where the red-eyed elders are bewitched into a dissonant concerto of yearning by the sight of Susanna bathing.

 The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1
Comparing the preludes and fugues composed specifically for organ with those in the WTC I, we may notice that in the WTC I they are apparently shorter and more modest in their expressive means.
To certain extent this may apply to all the clavier pieces; we would expect the relationship between performer and listeners in the domestic environment to be more intimate, conducive to sharing the musical experience.
This essay is inspired by the performance of the work on the harpsichord by Masaaki Suzuki, 1996, and is used for his CD (BIS-CD-813/814) released in January 1997 from BIS.

 The Well-Tempered Clavier   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The best known of Bach's clavier works is the famous set of preludes and fugues called The Well-Tempered Clavier.
In most of the preludes a single specific technical task is given the player; thus they might be called, in the terminology of a later age, études, for which some of Bach's little preludes (BWV 933-943) as well as all the two-part inventions and the three-part sinfonias may be regarded as preliminary studies.
As in the organ fugues, each subject in Bach's clavier figures is a clearly defined musical personality, of which the entire fugue is to be a logical development and projection.

 Till Fellner Records Bach's Well Tempered Clavier Book I [by Donald Satz]
I think his version of the Well Tempered Clavier is quite superb because it catches that heartfelt energetic feeling which, I think, is the hallmark of Bach.
For potential buyers of a set of the Well Tempered Clavier who have no sets at all and also have no preference concerning instrumentation, the entire field is within the market.
To those who listen to Bach casually, this new recording of the Well-Tempered Clavier, by Till Fellner, is sheer pleasure- its legato line clean, graceful, and intelligently colored, its sound picture warm, clear, and inviting.

 Classical Net - Bach Cantatas - Listener's Guide
However, many of Bach's preludes and fugues in the two sets are more mature revisions of earlier keyboard works he composed, and it is very interesting to listen to these embryonic creations and compare them to the eventually finished products.
Concerning the clavier, Bach traditionally made a distinction between the organ and smaller keyboard instruments; therefore, it is likely that the clavier only includes the harpsichord, clavichord, and fortepiano.
The important consideration is that Bach's Well Tempered Clavier encompasses the full breadth and depth of the human condition.

The screenplay is credited to Poiré and Christian Clavier (who wrote Les Visiteurs), with an assist from John Hughes (presumably brought on board to increase the level of physical comedy).
Jean Reno and Clavier reprise their roles as the heroic knight and his less-than-heroic sidekick.
New to the English-language version are Christina Applegate, made up to look as dowdy as possible; Matt Ross in the tired role of the weasel-like, unfaithful boyfriend; Tara Reid as the pretty gardener who inexplicably falls for Andre; and Brigette Wilson-Sampras, who spends most of the time rolling around on a desk exposing her cleavage.

 Bach, Mozart, and the 'Musical Midwife' Article by M. Rasmussen
Bach used this work to explore, in depth, the new musical possibilites of well-tempering, which could give these fixed-note instruments increased ability to play multi-voiced, or polyphonic music, as if they were different species of human voices singing together, with similar flexibility and irony.
He plays the clavier very skillfully and with power, reads at sight very well, and—to put it in a nutshell—he plays chiefly The Well-Tempered Clavichord of Sebastian Bach, which Herr Neefe put into his hands.
To repeat, it was especially Beethoven's ability to play Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier magnificently, in a Vienna that Baron van Swieten had brought to love Bach, which opened all doors for him, and which drew him into the Baron's musical circle.

 Christological Symbols in the Well-Tempered Clavier
S.D.G. Bach wrote S.D.G. on the reverse side of the last fugue (b-minor) of the Well-Tempered Clavier Book I. This autograph appears in the Mus.
The initials S.D.G. stand for Soli Deo Gloria, a quotation from the Latin translation of Romans 16:27 and Jude 25.
J.N.J. Prior to publishing Book I of the Well-Tempered Clavier in 1722, Bach assisted his eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann in copying early versions of eleven preludes into what has come to be known as the Clavier-Büchlein for Wilhelm Friedemann Bach.

This four-part poem (a sonata?) begins by introducing both its theme and its subject: first, that music is not mere sound waves, but rather the emotion stirred by those waves; and second, that the old tale of Susanna and the elders exemplifies this theme.
"Peter Quince at the Clavier" is a failure, no doubt, but a failure with such a notable musical vitality, as well as an intermittently vivid narrative skill, that readers still attend to it.
One might be tempted to call it a prototypical "young man's poem," in which the still learning poet tries to tackle too much.

Book II was assembled in 1744, more than 20 years after the completion of Book I. Some of it actually predates Book I, and some of the Preludes were once familiar as freestanding pieces in their own right.
