Post by remmus » Sun Feb 03, 2008 4:33 pm

Here is my first official mp3! I have received the composer's permission to post it!
Hallo Summer
very good for your performance (sorry for my english/italian........). Yes, you have my permission. For me is very importanant not the the way, o the absolute tecnical precision, but the passion. You have a good feeling with my music and so I will write another composition for you! (are you concertist?)
regards
giorgio
and so I will write another composition for you!
:shock: :shock: :shock: OMG!!!

O.K. Here's MY disclaimer - I only got this piece less than a year ago and have just now barely got it where I can play it without too many gross mistakes. I still have a lot of work left to do on it, but at least it's in the polishing stage now. :? :)

Hello Summer,

Beautifully done! How appropriate that Summer should offer us yellow buttercups!

How kind of Giorgio Tortora to allow us to enjoy his composition and your performance,

Best wishes, V :) :merci:

Beautiful playing there.

:merci: :okok: :bravo:

There seems to be an echo of one of the Leo Brouwer Etudes Simples in this one (I mean this in the nicest way and as a compliment to both the composer and player here) and the rhythms seem really confident and well done.

Lovely clear recorded sound too. Well done all round.

Cheers,

Matt.

Very sensitively and beautifully played, Summer.

I can understand why this is your favourite piece by Giorgio Tortora. The gentle sounds of Summer.

Many thanks to Giorgio for allowing us to hear you play it so well and thank you, too, Summer for sharing it with us.

:bravo: :merci:

I echo the sentiments of the other posters, Summer. This was a nice tune and you performed it beautifully.
I think it's cool that you got his written permission too! He seems a pretty laid back friendly guy for a composer :wink:

I'm so dense sometimes I really scare myself! :oops: :oops:
I just now got the "yellow buttercups". All of his songs were the names of flowers IN ITALIAN!

Good grief.........note to self......remember to check all translations of song titles............

I only know enough Italian to be dangerous—I got this title from a passing knowledge of Latin plant names—but it is a lovely language,

All the best, V :)

Nice work Summer.

A very sweet tone - with none of the first string edginess that is all too common in CG.

I like the rhythmic "breaths" you take during the first phrase, and in its repetition near the ending.
