Album Notes
In the Second Concerto I see Bach as coping with his pain and four hungry children while processing the grief of losing his wife, child and brother unexpectedly. The deepest despair endured not knowing the love of his life would be arriving in just a few months. Unrecorded are the people who helped feed and bathe the children, or who provided the liniments his aching heart and soul needed. I suspect it was the musicians in his orchestra and their families, but have no proof.

The honorees in the 2nd Movement are people who taught me great lessons. They are a desperately poor young boy, whose name I do not know, who displayed integrity, honor and dignity equaling the highest levels I have ever seen; Martin Luther King - the greatest voice I ever heard; Joe Manning - who taught me the meanings of friendship and leadership; and Pythagoras, invented the most important formula in the history of mankind – the right angle and triangle (“a” squared plus “b” squared equals “c” squared).

DaVinci ( painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer) , Rembrandt and Vermeer are the great artists from this era who inspire me. And Voyager 1 is, of course, honored in connection with the 1st movement of the 2nd Concerto - the first music on Voyager's "Gold Record."

There are several versions of the 2nd Concerto recordings contained on the EP's: #2 Hybrids; #2 Trios and Duets; and Brandenburg 23 Six Variations. Two of the recordings on "Six Variations" were remixed and remastered. Brandenburg 23 Mike Miller became Brandenburg 23 Vermeer, and Brandenburg 23 Quartet became Brandenburg 23 DaVinci.
