Talarn, Paco - Cançó trista

Post by hav » Sun Jan 08, 2006 1:19 am

Paco (pakillo) gave me permission to record and post this beautiful piece that he composed. I did this one after only a couple of evenings memorizing and practicing it so I'll probably make a new one in the furure - but I really have been chompin' at the bit to share this with the gang here in the English forums.

When giving me permission to record and present this piece, Paco gave me some insight into his impetus - what a wonderful (and sad) confirmation of what I felt when I first heard it...

From Paco:

This piece is a silent and impotent cry, that surface in the hours immediately following the loss of a much-loved member of my family, who during my childhood shared many long afternoons of guitar and love.

It is a sad song dedicated to my grandmother, who died, after bitter agony, spent in silence, caused by accursed alzheimers that lasted for many years.



Anyway - I hope my attempt at performance will do justice to the beauty and sadness of the piece - and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

I have also posted a vid of it and, for those who cannot yet access the vids here, you can see it on my junk pages -- you can also hear and watch pakillo's performance on the French forums - and the score is in the "you own creations" forum there as well.

My congratulations to you Horace. You've made it back. You do know that don't you? Lose the processing, it's no longer needed.

Dear Hav,
I am impressed, both from the beauty and sadness of this piece on one hand, and for your great emotional and expressive way of playing it on the other hand.
I am not a member of the French forum. Would you please do me a favor and send me the score (If the permission of Paco is granted).
God bless his grandma's soul.

Happy Guitar

As usual hav, beautifully played. I like this a lot after hearing it the first time. Not something that happens often. Thanks so much!

thanks y'all - I think the piece almost plays itself - quite a rare thing. Pakillo did really great with this!!

Sad and haunting...the way it was supposed to be.

You played it very nice. The story you sent along gave it that much more meaning.

Beautifully played Hav,

it sounds the best when you're in the mood for it.

Thanks y'all - but I think Pakillo deserves the bulk of the praise here - this one pretty much plays itself - the only thing I need to try and do is keep my hands from getting in the way (only partly successful so far)

Nicely expressed Hav. That is truly a beautiful piece of music, thanks to Paco, but also a worthy performance from yourself that captured the essence of sandness and helplessness he intended.
