My submissions for this session. Sorry that I don't contribute much to the thread lately. I've been busy lately (hurricane evacuation, cleanup, ...). Moreover, most of the posts are very well done. Besides some tone/mood production choices, there are not much to complain about.
Pleased to see you made it through the hurricane unscathed. Hope there wasn't too much damage.
Very well done on your submissions - Your dampings on the allegro are very good. I have slowed it right down now and am still struggling.
I guess there is quite a bit that could be done with the allegro in terms of varying the tone on the repeated sections, but this is largely down to personal preference. Also of course, this piece is Allegro which means it is supposed to be played fast. We all need to start off slow in order to learn a peice, but I guess that once we have it under our fingers it is time to start working it up to the correct speed.
Exercise 15 The dampings are very good and nicely together. You seem to have totally neglected the dynamics though. f - mf mp etc.
Exercise 16 Again dampings are good, but the whole exercise is supposed to be played mp. You are playing it too loud - more like f than mp.
As for the Bretoneuse, I agree with what Andrei said about the slidy uppy downy bits needing to be quicker. And of course doing something with the repeated phrases.
All things concidered, you have done very well. Keep up the good work.
