Would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks.

You gotta love Weiss! Brilliant composer.

Quite well done with your playing. A few challenges when it transitions sections but those should smooth out in time. Its a tough piece that needs to keep motoring along. My favorite recording of this is by andi33x here on the forum. You might want to give his recording a listen for ideas on phrasing and making the transitions between sections in a way to really move the piece along.

Thanks so much for sharing this. Whenever I here someone play it I aways tell myself to go back and resurrect it from the ash heap of pieces played but discarded over the years. My memory isn't what it once was so these big, complex pieces are harder to bring back but thats what sightreading is for.

Thanks for your comments, but there's no technical reason for the slight breaths I'm taking between variations. Perhaps, these breaths are slightly long, but they were intentional. I'll consider how to make the sections flow into each other better. I probably just need to be begin each one a bit earlier.

I have heard Andreas recording, but to be honest, I disagree with the way he approached it. That said, I love most of what else he plays. For me, I feel his rubato is excessive. I know this rubato is entirely intentional, but it's just not how I hear the piece. I actually find it flows less well, because of the rubato! Funny how people hear things differently. By the way, that's absolutely no criticism of Andreas' musicianship. I know he's an excellent player. It's just I play this piece very differently.

I really liked that piece. I had never heard it before. See, the beautiful things one learns by hanging out on this forum. I love the tone. What kind of guitar are you using? I know that the tone doesn't just come from the guitar, I know it has a lot to do with the player's touch. I know this because I've played many high dollar guitars, and I still sound like myself-for better or worse. But, when I listen to your videos with my headphones, the sound is very natural to me. I am a gear head in the end, the way some guys are about cars, I am about guitars lol. Oh, also what strings?

Thanks for these comments! I try hard to create a good sound.

My guitar is made by the English luthier Christopher Dean and the strings are D'Addario EJ45C. In my older videos I'm playing an Antonio Picado guitar with Savarez strings on. In quite a few videos, I'm using the Corum basses.
