Finally, managed to produce something. A lot of flubs here and there...
- page 72, 73 Carcassi, Matteo Valse opus 23 n°9
Just noticed that spacing is bad, phrases are not separated well. And dynamics have no contrast (even though I tried).
- page 94, 95 Sagreras, Julio Salvador Maria Luisa, Mazurka opus 19
Nicely played Andrie,
Considering all the work you must have had to do for your live performance you have done remarkably well.
Just a couple of minor points:
The Carcassi piece does sound a little rushed, though I think you are playing it at about the right tempo and you have some nice rallantandos. Perhaps as you say the phrasing needs looking at. It needs a little gap between the question and the reply. My view is that it needs to sound more like a singer who has to pause to take a breath now and again.
I can hear some contrast in the piece as you are definitely varying the volume. However, I notice that your right hand is playing in exactly the same position all the time, so you are not taking full advantage of the dynamic range of your guitar.
The Mazurka is also played well, and you have good seperation in the A section. However, at the start of the B section the melody is somewhat overpowered by the accompanyment making it sound a little unpretty.
The tricky bit at the end with the left handed finger gymnastics your played very well.
Once again well done! I'm still struggling to get a (reasonably) clean version of the Mazurka.
