Just for fun I recorded my read through (a few trials) of this very romantic and tiny bit melancholic walzlike piece called Grand Hotel Valse. It’s part 2 of the same suite by Eugenio Catina, based on the film score by Nicola Piovani.
Jack Stewart asked for the rest of the suite, so…
part 1 and 4 demand some more practice, and I have to spend most of my practice time to more serious stuff. But this valse is just such a joy to read, no complicated fingerings here…. So, there’s room to get carried away by the flow of the music. Thank you maestro Piovani…
HI all! I have recorded today something of Granada, DR transcription. I do not know how much I will improve in these next weeks....I have a lot of other pieces that I am working on...but I wanted to participate in the challenge and also because Barney is playing the Tarrega transcription ( I think Segovia did not a transcription of Granada, he did Asturias by sure...), at least he is not playing the David version. There are a lot of mistakes....I am learning it since June of this year (I began it together with "Sevilla" !!! "que loca" !)
Lob der Tränen, week 2. I started teaching full time this week, so I don't practice as much as I would like to, but I still practice a little bit each day. I made some progress on the second part. I I haven't played on that guitar that much, my thumb is often confuse and don't play the right bass note. I need to prepare more. But overall, it is starting to take shape. I will try to record this weekend the whole song.
