Norton, David - The Duke of Exeter's Daughter - Video

Post by David Norton » Wed Jan 09, 2019 10:51 pm

Norbert Neunzling has done me the honor of recording a little stretching exercise I wrote last summer. The 'Duke of Exeter's Daughter' is the name of a Rack-Style Torture Device from 1477, on display at the Tower of London. This is a stretching Exercise 'inspired' by difficult stretches in some of the pieces by Francis Cutting, Alonso Mudarra, or Domenico Scarlatti.

Recorded with my full approval, and he plays it much better than I can!

The score is hosted on his website, link in the YT video.

That actually sounds musical. I expected just a series of difficult stretches without any tune involved. Nice job.

Norbert gets the credit for making it sound musical. When I play it, let's just say the idea of "medieval torture" kind of naturally springs to mind.

Nice tune, it left me wanting more. My left hand couldn't do that on my best day.

I didn't know you were also a composer, David :D, it is really a nice little piece. Good work! I have long fingers, I may be able to play it. I'm going to check the score.
