Good job Stewart. I think you're right, mostly recording nerves. These are hard to play at recommended tempo as well. More practice my friend, they only get more challenging. Good job on polyphonie.

It has been lately difficult for me to get any regular practice done. As the 4th lesson was already posted a while ago, I need to move on, and although I find that these pieces still require lots of work, I guess it's best to start the next lesson now if I'm ever going to.

Wascha Mesa probably would have been more fluid if I did a couple of takes more, but I was pressed with time.

I apologize for the high noise level in the recordings. I had forgot to adjust the audio gain level for internal mic use after having recorded with external mics the previous lesson, and I needed to amplify the audio during post-processing.

Excellent Marko. I'm working on the Minuet still, trying to get consistency up to a reasonable tempo. I may post one soon.

:bravo: Marko
Your record are really good!

Wascha mesa
the damp you play very well. I still need to modify it.

El Postillon
on M27 the duration of the slur is sixteenth note,it sound like quaver.

Menuet
I really envy the second part you play, I'm still struggle in the M20-23, how do you play it fluency, I feel it difficult play as Delcamp's finger point.

:merci:

As far as I can tell, I play the sixteenth notes with correct duration. If you listen to Professor Delcamp's version, he uses some rubato in that measure slowing down before the 16th notes, and then accelerating the tempo, so the 16th notes sound faster in comparison. Could it be that this confuses you?
In your mind, imagine one beat for each quaver. Then each beat should contain exactly one quaver or two 16th notes.

Rhythmically measure 27 then becomes:

Code: Select all

1      2      3      4      5      6	
x      x      x-x    x-x    x      x

When I first did this course in 2013, the fingering of the menuet was different, much harder than it is now. I then penciled some changes into my copy of the sheet. My fingering for M21 is different than the current version of D05 collection. I play the upper voice as 0, 2, 4, 0, 3, 4 and lower voice as 1, 3, 1. Measures 20, 22 and 23 I play using the indicated fingering. There are some difficult sections in those measures, and it really takes lots of practice to get them fluent. You will need to be very careful with your damping as well to make both voices sound clear (not in those measures in particular, but especially the first part where open strings are used extensively).

If you're interested, staring from here is some discussion on the menuet fingering from 3 years ago.

Hi Everyone. I finally got a halfway decent recording of the Minuet to share with you for your comment. I plan to keep working on this piece and add it to my repertoire. This is a little slow in tempo, but not bad and pleasant to play. I have a lot of fuzzy notes and a few hesitations. You should hear me play it without the recorder on!

Good job, Rick! :bravo: That minuet is something that can be improved and polished almost indefinitely. The last bars especially are surprisingly hard to play clean and effortlessly while retaining legato articulation. The strain on the left hand somehow shows in the music.

Thanks Marko. Yes, seems the entire piece could be in the box of sticky parts. One big sticky part. The best pieces are the ones that keep on giving no matter how long you play them. And I've played some for a long time. Add Minuet 132 to the list.
