Thanks for a great lesson! The piece is a bit too tricky for me right now, but the lesson provided so much general musical insights that I learned a lot from. Will have to watch again for sure!
Well performed as always Scott. I don´t know this piece except from the recordings I have heard on this forums, so I don´t have much to offer critique wise. It felt like a nice tempo and you obviously have a great feel for the piece. Maybe there is room for more emphasis on certain expressive moments? I also wonder whether it would be an idea to t…[Read more]
I strongly agree with you Magdalena. I think we are all different when it comes to what kind of practice regime that is suitable. An organised weekly scedule is not motivating at all to me. But whatever I practise, I try to be concentrated and make the most out of it, yet having fun! I wish you lots of happy playing. It seems to work very well for…[Read more]
Very nice playing Mark, a convincing performance. I especially enjoyed the Sor, the voices come out clearly and I love the tempo you have chosen. If you haven´t already I recommend listening to Otto Tolonen playing this piece on youtube (a recording from siccas guitars).
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to listen and share your comments. I think the ornaments sound better on the recording than live when I play in my room. Maybe my webcam that I use for recording doesn´t pick up the string noise that I hear when I do the thrills. I am very pleased that you enjoyed it. I do love to play this little…[Read more]
I always enjoy your recordings, Bruce. You play beautifully and appear to be relaxed and really enjoying the moment. I read in one of your posts that you are interested in starting a thread on Wild Mountain Thyme – I just got the score and would very much like to join in on the project. Such a beautiful piece. As to the Prelude: I notice that you…[Read more]
Thanks for commenting, Julie and Scott. I agree, Scott, that some freedom is allowed in this prelude. It’s a prelude and from the French baroque and all. But I certainly hear that the phrases lack som forward motion here and there.
I think I might try to learn the whole suite, unless it proves to be too difficult technically. I have started on t…[Read more]
Thanks Michael, you have a good musical intuition. Your comments are very much appreciated. I think you are spot on regarding the first measures. I intentionally take a short breath between the first two short phrases, but after listening back now I see that it lacks a bit forward motion. The are also a couple of other spots where that happens.…[Read more]
I have started working on some of the grade 5 repertoire and first out is de Visee prelude from suite in d minor. I find the whole suite very beautiful and it would be great to learn a whole suite. While learning this piece I have been listening to many recordings, also of the Baroque guitar, and there are many and they vary a lot in…[Read more]
Thank you for sharing you concert, Rick! You play wonderfully. I was listening to it during a walk in the midnight sun in the Arctic Svalbard last night. CGC reaches out every where:)
