Hi Pentti, very well played - like my versions, they would benefit from more practice, particularly the ornamentation, but I suspect you are already working on Lesson 4 now. If you've seen Gabriel's recordings he's set a high standard!

Greetings all,
We had a recent holiday break (Thanksgiving) in the U.S., and many families are preparing for Christmas so there's been less time to practice/play :-)

With that said, here's an upload of the Polyponie 109 exercise and a slow tempo reading of Wascha Mesa, have not gotten this up to full tempo yet.

Hello John
You had well decrypt Wascha mesa and played it witn a nice ton but rhythmic is false. Arpeggiating chords is nice but here be careful to not move the rhythm. All yours eigthth have not same duration. Before increasing tempo it seems me important to correct that point

Hi Guys,

I got a quiet hour to myself last night so managed to get these recordings done. Here are my versions of Wascha Mesa & El Postillon De La Rioja.

Hi John,

Wascha Mesa is coming along nicely. Like Gabriel has already noted, the rhythm needs a bit of attention. I played this one very slowly with the metronome to get the note durations and rhythm figured before gradually increasing the tempo. Trying this approach for a while might help?

:bravo: David, very good.
It requires a little more practice (especially Postillon), but very good performance.

Thanks for the feedback Goran. Quite right - both need a bit more work to get them "right". I found Postillon quite challenging; it is musically a lot different from what I usually play and I found maintaining the rhythm in some places was difficult. But it has to be good for us to try something "different" from time to time. On to the lesson 04 pieces!

Thank you Stewart for your kind words. You are totally right - more practice is needed here. Yes, Gabriel is making fantastic job just as you too. I've learned many things when looking your and Gabriel's playing. Thanks to both of you.

John and David are also doing excellent job.

Best regards
Pentti

Hi Guys,

Well done everybody. This year is a lot harder for me than last year - but just to show you that I am still trying here is my Wascha Mesa.

I am going to carry on doing what I can as it I think the practice is still helping :)

Hello Chris
It's good to see you.
Your Washa mesa is quite well and sure more practice will help. Take time and make this D06 at yours pace, we will be here to listen to you
Here, it seems to me that bar 3 you forgot to play the first bass note (D & A). On second part, some notes of melodic ligne are damp with bass. And bar 60 it seems you played G# instead of A. These are just details, pratice it a bit more to make it more legato
:bye:

Good job guys. And hello to my classmate Chris from D03. Just keep on practicing. I noticed that you play F where there is F# in 2nd bar and similar bars.

Hello
Here a new take of El Postillon to correct my rhythmic weak point bar 10 and try to relieve it a little
I hope it's a bit better
Good listening :bye:

Well hello everyone, I have been trying and trying to play this piece , let alone get a decent recording of it, but here it is as best as I can manage at this point in time, I am posting it as a benchmark, when I revisit this lesson next year I hope to see an improvement, and maybe play it at the correct tempo :).
