Classical Caber: Dirk plays Bach’s English Suite No. 6 in D minor

I was in another part of the apartment yesterday today and I heard Dirk playing his new piano in his studio (a.k.a his office, a.k.a. the-room-that-used-to-be-the-spare-bedroom), so I decided to film him when he started playing a piece. Turns out it was the prelude from Johann Sebastian Bach’s English Suite No. 6 in D minor… which is almost 10 minutes long. My arms got tired just watching him play it… and from holding my iPhone. There were a few hiccups along the way, but I still think he did a brilliant job of it considering he hadn’t played it in years!

    You should have helped him turn the pages… LOVE hearing him play. He is good, anyone who thinks otherwise, do it better.

    First and foremost, I have to thank both of you for allowing your fans a tiny glimpse into your lives. I absolutely loved it, and think that the two of you are very handsome together. Continue to be that inspiration to someone out there that doesn’t believe that they can find love. I hope one day I get to meet one or both of you, and shake your hand. God speed to both of you.
