Thank you all so much for listening, and your gratifying comments
I'm very pleased you enjoyed the music
Will you tell us how long you have been playing this piece, and how much effort it took to get it to this standard?
Kath, I picked up this piece about halfway through last year... I didn't do much at first except reaquaint myself with the composer and his music... then I began to work it into my practice sessions, but only slowly as I was already committed to a longish work of five movements, 'Stele', by Australian composer Phillip Houghton... and then there's all the other stuff we do of course
I also had a concert appearance in October, where I had to play a duet with a violinist, and three solo pieces, so I had to break to prepare them.
I guess I took up Eroica seriously around Christmas, and worked on it fairly consistently until about 5 or 6 weeks ago
Then I learned that our sound techie, who had moved interstate, was coming back for about three weeks, and would be available for a couple of recording sessions, so I upped the practice and worked really hard for about a fortnight to get the piece ready... we put it down about 3 weeks ago
Sorry to be so long winded about it Kath but it was pretty disjointed all told... quite a few interruptions, and it wasn't easy to pull it together
I'm pleased you like the music... I hadn't played Giuliani for some years and I am quite taken with this piece
Thanks for listening
Joy in the music
Never, ever give up!... I leave my songprint on your heart.
