Ferrer Y Esteve, José - Ejercicio No 9 - D03

Post by wazow » Tue Mar 21, 2017 9:18 pm

I decided to try my wits on the old times forum favorite. Let me see what you think. Everybody should have an opinion :D

The speed in the Delcamp score (56 measures per minute) is insane. You almost do not find it online at this speed, and if this is so fast, then it is hardly beautiful. I trained at this speed, but decided to record slower. In the end, I wonder what is the goal of the exercise: is this to learn leading a sweet melody at high speed? :twisted:

EDIT: replaced the mp3 with a slightly more amplified one. I am struggling with selecting the amplification level. This recording seems quiet, even if I don't think I did anything differently than before.

Excellent! That is the tempo I use. It is a pity that a lot of Ferrer's music is not more readily available.

The speed sounds natural, to me. And it's well played.

Sounds great. I think the tempo was right. You managed to catch the dynamics when recording, so it was a pleasure to hear.

Very well done. I really like this musical piece at this tempo; there's time to get caught up in the piece and enjoy it.

Ferrer has some nice compositions. There's a good amount here on delcamp. Noad has some in the Romantic Guitar as well. I do wish his exercises were all in one place.

Very nice. Well Played.

This is one of my favorites. I actually play it a little slower still. It gives the piece a little room to breathe and allows for expression.
