Thank you for your comment. I am very happy if I can help you at any way to choose a nice piece among thousand and thousand,...
Dxx is really great edition but large at the same time. Maybe not everyone play all of the pieces etc., maybe my opinions can help one to find what he looking for.
I hope that you will enjoy with pieces that I suggest,... and one day upload something
I have a one forebearing comment about my "system" at one different topic so I want share a few thoughts with you:
- about "system"
- about this topic
- about Dxx edition
About my "system
As I said, it is not scientific, not wisdom, I think that everyone can make a system of his own. What I do - just recount all of the annotation + all of the comment from my note-book during learning a piece. I do it for every technique - stopping, arrpegio, ligado, LH, RH, scale,..., special elements,...bla, bla,... and put a mark for every element. After that, I summarize all marks and get final TOTAL that you can see at my table.
The purpose of this rating is to have a clear idea how much difficult is piece if I try to measure it (not only by my sense of difficulty). Now, I must say that my inner sense
most of the time correspond with TOTAL! But total give me exact "numbers" and sence doesn't.
But, once again, what is valid for me maybe it is not for you; I just offer you a my experience with Dxx level - that's all.
About this topic
So, this is a reason why I have open up this topic. To give you my insights and access, to maybe help someone and to hear your thoughts. This is not a topic about contents of edition, transcription etc,...rather about pieces inside. Also, it is not necessary to play all of the pieces (like I do) to post a topic - you can write whatever you think about difficulty and beauty of the Dxx pieces.
For example you can see that Mudarra's Romanesca is (for me) most difficult piece at D05 (maybe it even belongs to D06?!). I can exactly indicate why. But I will be very curios if someone find some other piece that is more difficult (for him).
About Dxx edition
This is not a topic only
about difficulty and insights. Everyone of us, looking for a nice piece.
So I always (after the post with table attached to it) send one more post about some particular pieces.
Also, what I specially like at Dxx editions is that cover almost every era: early period, baroque, classic, contemporary and all of the pieces are almost at the same level inside one book. This is very practical for development.
Personally, I prefer Latin America pieces but however I don't want to sunk down at LA and have not opportunity to enjoy with other composers and discover new one. It is much easier when someone prepare it for you.
And after all, when I have finish one book I am happy to spread oneself and report you
I am not profesional CG player, CG is my hobby, this topic is maybe look like a game but I like to think that it is a serious game
