A prelude by Weiss, the clock rings at the end... ;-)

Lovely, Valéry! This time you had to use every string as well. :merci:

That sounded great! I'm looking forward to the rest of this Suite/Sonata. Thanks for sharing.

:bravo: Very nice, Val, and I could barely hear the clock (I wouldn't have known it was there at all if you hadn't mentioned it :wink: ).

Yes Erik, as Weiss composed ON the instrument (not as Bach...) he uses all the possibilities...
Soltifera, I will try to record the sonata, but little by little, there is some work to do (I already worked on both menuets, and sarabande, and will post soon, and the allemande is near to be ready... but there is left the courante, the bourée (very nice one..) and the gigue (not easy at all) so...
Hi Geoff, it was only the half so it ring only two bells, at noon... 12*2... Usually I try to record during the half hour but here I didn't pay attention to the clock, and when finished, :evil: ... but I didn't want to do it again... Later perhaps ;-)

Don't worry about the clock, Val, it could have been worse :arrow: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=38100&start=0 :wink:

I said it on youtube but I'll say it again here - wonderful playing of a beautiful piece.


May I make a request for you to play something Val? I don't mind whether it's in a months time or a years time or in ten years. Just at some point consider playing the sonata no. 36 in D minor by Weiss. It is my favourite sonata of the ones that I've heard of Weiss and it is so wonderful - one of the best things I've ever heard. :casque: If you can handle the approximately 20 minute length of course :wink: Thanks :merci:

Jamie

Félicitations!! Your playing is becoming more beautiful by the day. The tone is wonderful and the voicing and dynamics are so subtle... (As much as I adore Weiss, I can't wait for you to approach some of the French baroque lute composers too. :flowers: ) This instrument really suits you Valéry!

:bravo: :casque:

Hello Jamie, I will have a look at this suite, if not too difficult (some very difficult music in Weiss...)
Thanks a lot Az ;-) but I still think I'm a renaissance lute player, baroque is a pain to play sometimes... and so exclusive, I can't play anything else when I'm in a baroque phase.
French baroque... I'll try a piece or two, but not my cup of tea... Those frenchies are too complicated, lol !!!

Maybe it's an acquired taste like Crotin de Chèvre or Cervelle au Beurre Noir :wink:

Really lovely music and performance. :bravo:
You get such a nice tone out of your lute Luthval - its always so soothing and graceful. :casque: :merci:
