Weiss, S. L. - Menuet in d minor

Post by kidneykutter » Mon Apr 21, 2008 2:20 pm

Menuet in d minor from the London Manuscript by SL Weiss. Same sonata as the prelude I just posted. Played around with ornamentation on the repeats, including both short and long appoggiaturas.

Hello kidneycutter,
I'm very impressed. Not only by the Menuett you are playing here but more by your website with all the beautiful lute videos allone 22 vids with Weiss music. A huge afford. :P
You play various pitches, D, A, F, ..... Is it possible to play them on the lute without tuning ?

Reading your profession I now understand your forum name :shock:

Thanks. The top 6 courses (single or pair of strings) of the 13 course Baroque lute are tuned fdafda and they are fretted on the fingerboard. The bottom 7 course are a diatonic scale going from A to G and only the top 3 of these are ever fretted. The bottom 7 strings are tuned according to the key of the piece so a d minor piece has a Bb instead of a B for the 13th course. A D major piece has a F# seventh course and a C# 11th course. That is one of the reasons pieces were grouped into suites or sonatas that were all in the same key, to avoid retuning after every piece.

Hi Kidney Kutter

I somehow missed this when you first posted it... Thank you so much... you play it beautifully!

[May I make one small suggestion for future posts? Having heard you play this lute, I was wondering why it sounded slightly garbled... so I checked the file and noticed that you had saved it at a relative low-resolution (128kbps) Since it's a short piece, you could save it at a higher rate and still stay under the size limit. I realize that you may not have had much control over the recording side while you performed, but it's worth thinking about...]
