Hey! Anybody else out there playing some Llobet?
I thought I'd give this seldom-heard piece a try. According to my score (attached below), it is part of the Canciones Populares Catalanas. I guess the title means "Lament", which is fitting (perhaps "Dirge" would be even more fitting). Very somber and mysterious, but beautiful.
In case you're following the score, I decided to skip the first repeat, but to play the second one.
I just thought it’s not nice to leave Eric alone in this challenge. Unfortunately I’ve little time to practice and Llobet’s arrangements and compositions are never easy, but I give a try at this little piece, that is not so familiar. I’ve never heard it in concert. L’Hereu Riera, said to be a folk tale about the son of a rich/noble Catalan family (hereu, apparently, means heir).
its not very lyrical or fragile. The rhythm is straightforward. I like the harmonic structure.
I’m struggling with the pizzicato part. It feels tense and I don’t know if I can make it sound good enough. In the last phrase, keeping the melody on the 5th and 6th string fluent is also tricky.
a first rough version…
