Behr, Franz - Camp of the Gypsies

Post by debijane1 » Mon Mar 12, 2007 1:47 am

Learning CG for 14 months now, earlier I posted 'Anxiety Playing at a Master Class'. This is the piece I plan to play. (Hoping it's allowable; the composer passed away in 1898).

This piece should be played faster & of course more accurate than I play it. But with my limited ability, I did the best I could at a comfortable pace.

For what's it worth, here's my 1st MP3 ever. Thanks, members, for your indulgence and support.... Any feedback/criticism welcome. Fire away, I can take it.

Hello debijane1,

That was great thank you for sharing. It's hard to evaluate a recording since it could be a recording issue or a non recording issue. I would recommend a little balance between the bass notes and the melody. The bass notes seemed to overpower the melody. Again this could be simply the recording method you used. Overall this is fantastic and I'm sure you will do well when you perform it in your master class. Thank you again and good luck!

What a great effort debijane :okok:
I actually found it to be quite well balanced but I do like a definite bass line and I enjoyed listening :casque:
I think you will 'shoo it in' at your master class
:merci: for playing for us, and congratulations on posting your first mp3 :cornet:

Joy in the music

Never, ever give up!... I leave my songprint on your heart.

After all, this is not bad!

I like it. :)

I am sure, the people at your masterclass will like your playing, too!

That was very nicely played I think! Very well done for your short playing time! Have no fear about the masterclass, if I sat in the audience I'd quite enjoy listening to your song!
