Thanks Matt. I appreciate your suggestions. I'll give them a shot. I certainly agree that the piece will benefit from being played a little less "straight"!mjbindy wrote:Thanks for sharing.
I am currently working on the opus 1 Divermentis, currently. You have played the Andante well; which is harder than it looks. The anticipation notes really make this piece (IMHO). Try holding onto the anticipatory notes then finalize with the tonic for a bit on anticipation (The last bar for instance, good example) and add a bit of inflection in the repeat sections.
The Allegretto in this Opus is really beautiful, also.
I'm pleased to know I am your introduction to this piece. I found it's absence on YouTube unacceptable! Looks like there are others there now though, if you search for Sor Divertissiment or Divertimento.lazy_s wrote:Nice one, never heard this before
I appreciate your comment Vesuvio. Thank you! I always had trouble finding recordings of this and it seemed a good opportunity to provide a little service to anyone wondering what it sounds like. I mean, who-in-their-right-mind wouldn't want to hear Op. 1 No. 1 by Fernando Sor? hey, maybe I'll corner the market of people who have been playing Classical guitar for 10 or 20 years and suddenly say to themselves, "What does Sor Op. 1 No. 1 sound like?"Vesuvio wrote:Hi Dofrenzy,
Thank you very much for the opportunity to hear you play this—I enjoyed it,
All the best, V
Thank you e.zurcher. So glad you enjoyed it! Opus 1 has a gem or two. My personal favorite from this opus is No. 3, Larghetto.e.zurcher wrote:Lovely dofrenzy. Thank you for posting. I enjoyed every second of it. This is the first time I heard this piece and I thought I knew all of Sor's pieces.
