George,
Your "Mi Favorita" sounds great! You nailed the rythym pattern on this one. :) The 2nd part needs a bit of cleaning up but that will come with more practice. That is the most challenging part of this piece. I hope you are able to get a version of "Lockvogel" recorded in the next day or two so you can participate in the final. You are almost there! The Strauss piece was a challenge for me because I haven't mastered my slurs and trills yet. Good luck!

Hi Cat,

Thanks for the kind words :P
Posting Valse Opus 118.
Not very clean, and I jump to the wrong bar at the end, but will have to do given the time constraints.

:bravo: Fernando,

Those are some beautiful recordings! I am impressed with how well you play the 2nd part of Lockvogel. I am still
working on that one.
Welcome to this forum,

Hi gang,

I just started working on the Mi Favorita piece, hope to post a video this weekend if not sooner. Below is some feedback on classmate videos for the piece.


Cat - The 2nd recording is executed better than the 1st one, good job :bravo:
Just some minor timing/position shift related items to smooth in Part B
There's a missing A bass note in measure 17 for the first pass and the repeat as I recollect.


Marko - Well done, sounds great, nice use of rubato to add some color/phrasing in different parts of the piece. :applauso:
The pause @ 1:16 was probably not intentional rubato :-)

George - Overall you have most of piece worked out, just a few more places to smooth out with practice and a slower tempo to build up fluidity in some of the tougher postion shifts/changes. :okok: :okok:
I did notice an extra E bass note in measures 8 & 16, take another close look at the score and those passages at a very slow tempo.
Where is the microphone placed and how far away? The reason I ask is that the tone seems overly treble and metallic with some harshness, could just need to back it away about 6-12 inches.

Fernando -- nicely done, sounds good and I noticed you added some phrasing and tone/timbre changes for extra color :applauso:


Is Mark doing better? I read about his injury previously, hope he's doing well.

Nope, definitely hesitation trying to masquerade as rubato! :lol:

John,

It was enjoyable to listen to your version of "Mi Favorita Mazurka". You add some "rubato" to this version which gives is a romantic flavor.
It sounds very good. Thanks for the feedback too! I am taking a break this week due to moving and another injured finger. I'm glad you decided to learn the pieces in lesson 8. Have you started on the Strauss piece yet?

:) Cat

Hi Cat,
:merci: for listening , glad you liked it.

Sorry to hear about the finger injury, hope you get well soon.

Moving is always fun --- Not! :pascontent:

I started on the Strauss, part A is coming along, still working on the B part and cleaning up slurs and grace notes
Hoping to post a video for it this coming week

I could have posted sooner if I would not have diverged a little to learn another Sor Study (Op35, No17, Segovia 6) earlier in the week :daccord:
I posted a video for it @ viewtopic.php?f=90&t=96301

John, I removed your embedded youtube video from this thread, as the piece isn't part of this lesson. If you want to repost it, please do so at Students' Corner.

Best Regards,

The Sor Study (Op35, No17, Segovia 6) can be found in the Delcamp D04 lesson book/anthology or the Delcamp 20 Sor studies booklet which has all of the same material as the Segovia 20 Sor studies

Ok's a recording of Strauss; Lockvogel, although I'm not too happy with it yet :nerveux:
This one still needs more work, but here's something for helpful feedback :contrat:

Hey John,

The first part is sounding very clean already, and I like the way you play it! For the second part the rhythm should be more easily flowing. You hesitate for too long after the first beat trills before moving to second beat. I guess it's just a matter of getting some more practice with that 2nd part.

thanks for the feedback Marko, its greatly appreciated... :okok:

I practiced the 2nd part a bit more to get more comfortable with the rhythm and trills.
Here's a 2nd take that is better in part b--compared to take #1--, but overall not yet where It needs to be from a complete beginning to end without mistakes/flubs rendition. :oops:
