I have several students who are working on the Bach Double. Despite making them a practice tape (to listen to their individual part slowly, mm. quarter = 52), they are having a very hard time learning notes (accidentals are frequently wrong).

I finally realized/discovered that the David Cerone CD has no Bach Double on it. Could anyone tell me if the David Nadien CD DOES have the Bach Double on it? I know it is on the Book 5 CD, but it seems to me that it is a shame it’s not on Cerone’s CD. These kids (transfer students) have clearly not been able to listen to it enough since it isn’t on their Book 4 CD!!

When I was growing up it was on my Book 4 record (yes, I am dating myself!).

You can download a midi version of the Bach Double from CLASSICAL MUSIC ARCHIVES. Get someone to remove the unwanted channels. You can even slow it down if you have a midi player (some also free to download).

Here is the url:

If you get stuck, send me a private e-mail and I’ll set it up for you and e-mail you the results.

Will this work if you don’t have a midi player?

The Bach Double is on the Nadien CD. It has 3 versions—both parts together, second part, first part.

I have the Linda Perry MIDI CD, but it contains the Nadien recordings also. For whatever reason, when I play the CD through my computer, it displays some of the names incorrectly. For example the Bach Double is on the CD three times, but displays as the two Vivaldi concertos. The Vivaldi Concertos display as the Shubert and Brahms Lullabies.

Suzukimom, thank you! It’s hard to tell from a website what’s on a particular Suzuki CD. I still think it’s awful that the Bach Double would be left off of Cerone’s Book 4 CD altogether. It’s wonderful to hear that the Nadien version has it three ways. Yay!
