My Aranjuez performance with Orchestra dell Arte

Post by Steven Joseph » Sun Sep 29, 2013 9:08 am

Hi Guys,

I've just uploaded a recording of my performance of Concierto de Aranjuez with Orchestra dell Arte. The recording was done by an audience member near the back with an iPhone no less!?! But the quality is bearable, though my playing may not be (was just a bit nervous!).

For copyright reasons i've been told I cant give you a direct link so if you visit my Facebook website you'll find a link to my soundcloud account in latest post: https://www.facebook.com/stevenjosephguitar

I chopped the recording into three tracks (each movement) but other than that no editing of any kind has taken place (unfortunately!).

The recording is taken from a concert in Heswall Hall, The Wirral on 28th September 2013.

many thanks

Cheers guys. Apart from a few obvious screw ups (particularly in 2nd mov) I was pretty pleased overall. When the nerves are jangling that first movement is a real nightmare!

Yeah but imagine doing a tour of the piece, playing it 3-4 times a week for 2 months you'd have it perfect after the first few performances and find it easy by the end.

Excellent! The outer movements had great spirit and the middle one was soulful - just as it should be. :bravo:

Very nice Steven! I watched a certain high profile performer (I'll mention no names but his son makes his guitars... :wink: ), who has performed this piece many hundreds of times, make a significantly greater "screw up" than you did...You did great, you should be nothing but proud of your accomplishment.
