You are most welcome to this Topic with your comments and eventual recordings, Peskyendeavour. Yes, all of Sor's Opus 60 pieces are little jewels, those first three included. The #1 always gives me a special pleasure to play. The #3 is not that easy and you have to be able to play it well in order to start enjoying it. You should now try the #4 and the #5. Amazing ones!Peskyendeavour wrote: ↑Mon Jul 24, 2017 10:13 pmI ran through Op 60 sight reading while drunk the other night because I read this thread earlier in the day and it felt like I should do it. I had so much fun... I have decided to do it seriously now sober.
So I practiced #1&2 which are lovely, Sor is such a great composer... There is always something new I discover every practice session I go back to it.
#3 - feels like it's an all thumbs piece (- I tried to look up earlier posts here to see how you interpreted and played it, but I can't find it and the site/ browser keep crashing when I look through the pages of post... Give up... I'm no techy.) Advice? On #3 interpretation and RH fingering - not on the web.
These are beautiful melodies I'm totally hooked, though I must say before this I was already hooked on Sor and was working on Op 31 before jumping to this. In some ways most of these single line melody pieces are more beautiful and complex, and even harder to play well. The production of each note or its stopping or not is even more exposed and critical.
Do you find that too?
I realised I'm joining the "party" late, since this thread started before I joined the forum.... and I don't have any recording equipment either, hope you won't throw me out because of that... I can only be a silent player...
