Carulli, Ferdinando - op.006/01 Overture - Video

Post by powderedtoastman » Sun Mar 25, 2018 8:15 pm

Hello all,
We are lucky enough to have a very good teacher in my area who puts on a quarterly performance workshop where we have sort of weekly mini masterclasses in front of the group discussing technique and performance practice. We each pick about two or three pieces every term and prepare them for a little recital at the end where we invite some friends and family.

The first of my two pieces this term was Carulli's Overture No. 1 from Op. 6. In the spirit of an overture (usually a symphonic prelude performance to an opera), I got to open the recital with this one. It's not perfect but I think I did pretty well.

I hope you enjoy! Sorry the audio is a bit quiet.



Also Op. 6 is supposed to be three overtures, but this is the only one I've seen any evidence of. Does anyone know where I might find the other two?

Nicely done. This is a fun piece which doesn't get played so often.

Thanks for checking it out, David! Means a lot to me.
Yeah this is a fun one for sure, and doesn't require any super difficult fingerings, so it should be accessible to a lot of players actually.. going to keep it in my rotation and keep trying to improve the dynamics and showmanship!
