Dowland, John - Forlorn Hope Fancy - D10

Post by Praeludium » Wed Jun 08, 2011 8:15 pm

Hello,

this is a very powerful piece that I will be playing for an exam in about a week. Far from being perfect... I play without nails on a spruce guitar with aquila nylgut strings. Raw .mp3 from a video I shot this evening with a camera.

The music begins at 00:18.

Thanks for your patience..


edit : new version. It's still far from perfect : plenty of buzz, and some arpeggiated chords sound bad... I have to work on my left hand and my concentration now...

Very nice! This is one of my favourite pieces and I know it is extremely difficult to play. Your tone is beautiful, but some of the notes were muffled. You still have another week to work on it. I wish you all the best on your exam.

Thanks !
I know, there is a whole beat which almost didn't sounded in the first part ^^ And I still have to correct many things in the second part. Anyway I usually play it slower (really slow ^^), because I like how it sounds when notes almost die in the first part.
I will work on that today (:

:bravo:
Nice performance. This is a lovely piece, it allows for a lot of emotional expression. My sound system is a bit out of kilter right now, so I really can't comment on your tone, dynamics or technique.
:merci:

I'm not a professional, but I felt emotion in your playing. Also, you brought out the chromaticism of the piece very clearly. Wishing you the best as you perform.

Thanks (: It went quite well. A member of the jury happened to have played the piece and he known it well ^^' but he told me what I did was fine.
