Thanks. The sheet music has many repeats that I ignore. Some of them make little musical sense. So I take only the opening repeat—the piece seems better balanced without the others.Nick Cutroneo wrote: Tom—wonderful recording, and thanks for bring this piece to my attention!
The secret is to cook them in bacon fat.The ornaments you put in are quite tasteful as well!
Certainly for me, it's been maybe a hand full of years that I've heard of Ferrer. Your sentiments perfectly sum up why, probably. His music isn't the most complex or ground breaking. But I've found that a lot of his larger pieces are quite suitable for students.
Tom, I totally understand.
The mics were recommended by a fellow guitarist who’s also a very good recording engineer. I picked them up used over the internet. My guess is they’re capable of better than what I’ve done so far. I’m limited by the locations I use for recording. If I ever get a chance to record in an acoustically good room, I’ll grab it.Lawler wrote:The DPA 2011C is an interesting mic in its design. Sounds here like it captures very well what is in front of it.
It’s a sweet little ditty, and I did a lot of planning on how to put it across. Pieces like this show off how alluring the guitar can be.David Norton wrote:This is a fun sounding piece and you give it just the right amount of Victorian Era schmaltz to be convincing.
It's funny how critical we can be of our own recordings...we know them intimately, warts and all :/ I'm the same way with mine. I assure you, however, that as a casual listener to this beautiful recording I don't hear anything but lovely music. It's nice being on the other end of the recording and just getting to listen to the results of hard work!Tom Poore wrote: ↑Thu Aug 17, 2017 10:17 pmFor me, the most interesting part of this recording is the pianissimo section beginning at the 1:47 mark. I want this to be very soft and wistful, but was unsure how low I could go. Originally I used a somewhat louder take for this section. Listening to it, however, the passage begged for something quieter. I had one take where I’d played as quietly as I dared. (Fortunately it was an almost perfect take—there was one annoying left hand squeak I was able to edit out.) At the time I was playing, it seemed far too quiet. But that’s the take I ended up using.
