Barrios Mangoré, Agustín - Julia Florida - D08

Post by wolfgang » Thu Jun 15, 2006 3:24 pm

Here we go, my first Barrios. I picked an "easy" one :roll:

For a bit more power on the basses I tuned the 6th to C# instead D.

The creaking sounds like a gondola, no? But it's only my wooden chair, no money for Venice, currently :lol:

Hope you enjoy it, any comment is appreciated !!

cheers
Wolfgang

PS: This forum and you people are my greatest inspiration for classical guitar! Explicitly I want to thank hav for his interpretations and videos, as well as David Russel :strizzalocchio: and all other great Barrios players as homayoon.

:love:

can i get a ticket on your gondola ! very well played , in a rubato way as i like ... it sounds great 8) ; duration 5'07 is up (generally duration 3:15 to 4 minutes) , but for me duration is indifferent [ 4'38 my version ] , cause feeling is really present beginning till the end....
:bravo: for this rendition :love: ... r version , i sincerely delighted :casque:

Beautiful Wolfgang... a little slower than one generally hears, but played with great feeling :flowers:
I very much enjoyed listening to you play :casque:
:merci: for sharing

Joy in the music

Never, ever give up!... I leave my songprint on your heart.

thanks jarods and owl! I am very happy that you liked it.

I know its a bit on the slow side, but I can't play it faster without sacrificing other aspects of the performance. So I hope speed will come after some time :oops:

When I review my current "repertoire" it is strikingly obvious that there are predominantly if not only sad and melancholic melodies. I should pick some funny tunes as well :D

This is a beautiful interpretation wollfang, lots of feeling and passion. I don't mind it a little slower, heck almost everything I play is slower then tempo :D

I agree with fEZ! I like the moody/dark stuff best!

Thanks for this.

:bravo:

You do seem to play with feeling .. enjoyed your playing. Just think in times like these you've created a bit of joy and beauty enjoyed by others around the world from Germany, France, Australia to the USA. CNN should take note. Thanks for the moment

A bit slow indeed, I feel that it's lacking it's cadence... and yes it's supposed to evoke water :lol:

But I like the your play, sound and there is a spirit in this interpretation.
Great work!

Thanks bumpa, CPA and wchymeUS! I am very happy that most of you can find some spirit in my humble interpretation. I feel myself still somehow in the obvious bloody beginners' stage of a classical guitar player, so it takes a lot of time for me to master pieces like Julia Florida. I hope I can refine this Masterpiece :D of Barrios and post an updated recording soon!

:merci:

It may be slow Wollfang but the tone is beautiful.Speed will come with practice and familiarity, your'e right not to sacrifice those sounds.

Since I'm new to all this I thought it sounded great. The tempo of the song sounded fine to me and gives it a nice melow feeling. Good job, I'll post my version of this sometime around August of 2009.
