This is the first time I've heard you play and I heard you were good, but I had no idea you were this good! :o
Where's the smiley for bowing down to someone's greatness? :?:
Thank you for sharing this wonderful performance of one of my all-time favorite pieces! :casque:

well Owl, you know my passion for albeniz's music and sooooooooooo spanish music ; i missed this one :mrgreen: ; but i have been taken by the music, your music ; what a very good rendition :!: , with all the staccato attention to specific basses notes as i 'd love ! rasguedos are great 8) and the music balanced my heart, cause i know this score ! ok for the 4'35" rasguedos chords passage, a lovely piece you did great with great playing....
don't forget :wink: :
The subtlety of a Note is to the Spirit, what finesse in Phrasing is to the Heart. The only Link that separates them is that exquisite Sensitivity that leads them to Expressiveness. That Sensitivity is like the surface of an iceberg that melts without ever revealing what remains submerged. But at the frontier, Sensitivity and Expressiveness have a twin sister: Passion .....(author jarods)
and your music is alive :bravo: and has charmed our hearts :idea: & :ongles:
many :applauso: to you .....
cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesrs patrick :merci:

Owl - I'm soooo glad I had a rare bit of spare time today to browse through some MP3's and found this!

Wonderfully played, as we've all come to expect by now, but more of a surprise was your interpretation. As I was listening and browsing through previous comments, I was thinking how "masculine" it sounded, and I wasn't sure if I could get away with saying that until I read your comment:
owl wrote:I think it's a male piece in a sense... there is an assertiveness and a grave power in the music that is not a womanly feeling
I completely agree, and think you did an excellent job of bringing this out in the piece.

:bravo: .... and .... :merci: :merci: :merci:

Thank you for introducing me to this beautiful piece, beautifully played. I had never heard it or you before. I've read some of your posts in the past (your little graphical avatar/icon is quite memorable), but hearing you play adds another dimension altogether - I feel a little bit like we've just talked over a cup of coffee for a couple hours.

Thank you for sharing, it was a pleasure to listen to you perform.

Owl, you've outdone yourself with this one! I downloaded it expecting a lovely rendition and I got that and more. The expression and feel you have put into this suit the piece perfectly and I honestly can say that this is my current favorite interpretation!

Thanks for sharing this with us :merci:

btw- excellent recording quality too :casque:

Oh my god....I am getting goose bumps listening to your interpretation of Cordoba. I have listened to this piece before, played by Pepe Romero, but a couple of months ago I actually heard it for the first time, I mean really heard it. It spoke to my heart in a new and really deep way. This is an amazing piece of music and you play it so very passionately and beautifully. You must have some spanish blood!

I absolutely love hearing you play, Owl. And I treasure this recording of Cordoba!

loved it - this has to be my favourite piece from Albeniz and you played it superbly with so much passion, lovely dynamics and energy - as good as any interpretation I've heard before - and for free :)
thankyou

:lol: Yeah, it doesn't get much better than this, right? We can't take Delcamp, Owl, and are other contributing members' generosity for granted.
