Hi

My setup is: RODE Nt1 and two RODE NT5's into Bose Tonematch and laptop.
I think the sound is quite nice in this church....

Happy Holidays!

I love this Weiss Prelude. I played it in college straight from the Baroque Guitar Anthology, published by Fred Noad, also in the key and tuning of E. You play this just wonderful. Thanks for posting your version.

I knew there was something familiar about your recording. . .

The Courante and Bourree that follow are equally beautiful, unique, and fun to play. But, this Prelude is just downright magical. I listened to your recording again as i was replying, and you really play this excellent. Thanks for posting your recording. You have inspired me to dig out my Baroque Anthology and check out this Prelude and other pieces of the suite.

Allemande... Just listened to it. Very nice, clean and flawless. Nice tempo!

I realy like the tempo you chose for the Allemande. I played it faster, your tempo is better. I am going to play this piece slower, sounds more beautiful. Thanks again for the inspiration!

I also play that Allemande from Noad's book. I like your slower tempo. I noticed you left out many slurs that are written in the score. I think they are probably awkward to do with a slow tempo, potentially "snappy" sounding. I think Noad tried to maintain as many original slurs as he could, but maybe leaving them out is actually better. Also, at the beginning of the B section is that harmonic. I believe the score indicates to play that with the left hand pinky finger, although I may try to do it your way.

I bought the cassette tape that goes along with Noad's book (probably available as a CD now). Edward Flower plays the Prelude, Allemande, and Sarabande from this Weiss Sonata. He really does a great job on this, and his tempo is slightly faster for that Allemande.

All these things notwithstanding, your recording and playing are very nice. I'm looking forward to hearing more movements if you put them up here.

Hi Glen

In the Allemande I nevet felt it was a 'Quick' movement - I always played it slow, mainly because of the following movements which are quicker.....
After I postes this I have given it a new thought, and while some of you are inspirere to try a slower tempo - I might considering playing faster....
But as a whole suite I might stick with the slower tempo, to add balance in tempo and expression....

...and for some reason I generally end up with slower tempo than average....
Dont know why, its not because I cant play fast, I just think my playing is more expressive this way :)

Slurs are ornaments to the piece. Its like a Chistmas tree. Sure you can put ornaments on it, but it is still remains optional. you dont "have to."

@ Kristian: Looking forward to you posting the remandier of the suite. I will check back for updates. I really am inspired by your tempo to the Allemande. Wonderful. I cant wait to hear how you interpret the beautiful Courante.
