Indeed it is. I love how the piece constantly changes from a feeling of 3 to 2 and back again. I've found in working on the piece a metronome is very helpful, playing through the piece using the metronome in 3(3/4) and then again in 2 (6/8). More challanging then you might think.60moo wrote:Rocket88,
I'm still polishing the piece. Great fun to play, and I've found the trick to getting the right feel is to bring out the rhythm by "playing through the bar lines" in certain sections.
I guess I play it pretty "straight six" (a little title humor!) although I slow down as I approach the repeating sections before bar 71 on my transcription (Diaz/Caroni). I go back to straight time there but build in volume approaching the restatement of the opening flourish. I also like to speed up the final bars before the final ritard at the end.60moo wrote:Rocket88 - Out of interest, once you've learnt the piece with a metronome and got it pretty well down pat, will you continue to play it in strict tempo, or introduce tempo rubato so that the dance takes on a life of its own?
Most recorded versions I've heard are rhythmically strict, and even though it's a dance, my own style tends towards stretching and squeezing the pace ever so slightly, with a noticable speeding-up 15 bars from the finish to generate a little extra excitement. It's just that I've never been a metronome type!
Rocket88 - Same here. It's good to go a little crazy at this point!Rocket88 wrote:...but build in volume approaching the restatement of the opening flourish.
