Well done and congratulations, Lynette. G3 has some lovely repertoire you’ll enjoy.
A roasting of all my shortcomings as heard by the excellent Dave lasting about 35 minutes. Very valuable, very pinpointed, very detailed. Can’t say I’ve understood everything as of one single viewing. But I know I’ve been given enough specifics to work on. Should benefit others too venturing into this grade to avoid such pitfalls as I had dug for…[Read more]
Hey David, thanks for the kind words! That Rujero version was from an old Trinity College publication as part of their curriculum way back then. You get to pick up interesting new stuff from the old stuff, sometimes ;)
Bravo, so I get to see you and Marion perform at last! Superb. Lovely little composition too. Glad to know of your sound adventure escapade. It’s all happening, Bruce. More power to you. Love reading every little bit of what goes on with you on these interesting journeys. And yes less blah-blah is always good and so difficult to learn ;)

Thanks so much for commenting, folks. It was Steve’s idea to play the cello with DuJu and with this piece at that. He plays it like a boss, doesn’t he? Great collaborating with him.
Of course, like all DuJu videos, this one too is ‘public’, so feel free to share this video with people you know (and shake them up a little ;))

There is a lot of fantastic and useful info over there on one of our star classical composers that ever lived, the Beethoven of the guitar – curated by our very own Glenn. Time stretched? OK, here’s at least a DuJu version of a Sor study with the redoubtable Steve. Got a…[Read more]
“Come to Sunnyvale,” said Steve B to us, inviting us home. “I have art on my walls. And we’ll play Op 6 No 8 – aka Study No 1 from Segovia’s 20 Studies of Sor.” He had definite thoughts on it as well, as Steve always does.
A good teacher when working on a piece with multiple voices should take the student through the exercise of splitting t…
Nice to get it off at one go, Martha. Great to listen! WMT is new to me and very inviting and lilting. The pavanes were especially good, the last one of them I thought (maybe because it’s the one I’m most familiar with) you played with dynamics and tone shaping. Enjoyed it. That new iPhone is sure rocking it, I must say.
