This is indeed an awesome performance of 'La Cathedral'.

Bravo! I wish you the best of luck for your exam. You can do it!

To say it in german: Viel Glück, Du schaffst das.

Good Job! I also play this piece, although not for any exams.

The first movement was done very well. Good tone and phrasing. Your playing of this movement reminds me EXACTLY of how I would play it. I would try to make the two voices a bit more disticnt, although you still did a good job there.

The second movement was done very well, no problems at all.

The third movement was played very cleanly, something that is very hard to do (I can barely do it myself). I think this is one of the pieces that even the pros mess up. At 4:45, I think that whoe section after that shoukd be played quietly with alot of swelling.
I can definately hear dynamic changes which were great, just move that right hand aroud more! It makes everything more interesting.

Thank you much BFGUITAR for your advices! I`ll try more dynamic changes and different right-hand positions.

Lovely music! Very fitting to go with the beautiful place you are from! I was stationed in Landstuhl for a couple years (not long enough!) and loved the area between the Saarland, Rheinland Pfalz, Mosel & Rhein Rivers, the area up near Bitburg (Eifel?), the Hunsruck (sp?), and the area going southeast all the way from Karlsruhe (sp?) to Stuttgart. I did 2,000 km of volksmarching in the first 20 months (my favorite was Urexveiller in the Saarland) and spent the last few months castle-hopping! Two things I remember most fondly about the area around Stuttgart were the very tall, canopy-forming elm trees with few lower branches (which, coupled with the Forestmeister's brush-cleaning, created a lovely forest!), and the sounds of Cuckoos in the spring -- real ones! Best regards, and thanks again for the good music!

Hello Markus!
Are you still studying in Freiburg? How is it going? I have downloaded your recording because I like to listen to the music of Agustin Barrios Mangoré at the moment. I want to play some similar music on my mandolin, as I have played a lot of choro music lately.
