Hi again Peter... the transcription I used was my teachers arr. from the original
Louis usually arranges all my music, the major pieces anyway

So when I read the stories you write to describe each section, I understand the engagement you have to the music and why it is distinct from other performances. You are telling us those stories because you are all the parts and players performed perfectly.
It seems that you 'get it' Peter... the music is always the story I feel inside the piece, that's the communication I want to make with the listener... engagement is a good word
As I am engaged in the music is how I want to engage you, the listener, I want you to come on that journey with me... if I am successful then I have achieved the goal of the music
That's a humbling and happy experience
My first classical guitar teacher told me to always consider my guitar as an extension of myself, in every way... from playing her to caring for her... I've always done that
I'm happy you enjoyed the music and the story it told
Thank you so much for listening and taking the time to comment
And DO keep practicing... there are heights to reach that you haven't dreamed yet!
Joy in the music
Never, ever give up!... I leave my songprint on your heart.
