Weiss, S. L. - Capricio - D06

Postby Bertran » Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:08 am

Dear all,

After a few months of practice I decide to upload this very interresting piece. Very interesting and hard at the same time (I even think that maybe belongs to next levels).

Specially, after 1:50 min of recording (after 50th measure) there is no measure bar inside sheet (!) and there exist one topic (at Delcamp) about this (cadenza). It is not easy to understand rhythm and interpretation. Did I understand? To be honest, I don't know - I play by my ''feelings''.

So, there is a moments that can be played better but at the same time I am again ready to your open critics...

Yes, this piece is a harder than others .
I think that I have a more space to improvements: accuracy, consistency,...
But I like to check what all of you thinking and to correct something before continue to practice,....

Thank you for your time and support; it means to me a lot. :bye:

:bravo:
Wonderful performance, Bertran. I think that your interpretation sounds great. That is a very unusual section, it almost sounds like it doesn't belong to the same piece.
I can see why this was a difficult piece to conquer, but you did it and have a recording to prove it.
Thank you.
:merci:

Exactly, I picture myself like I am running up and down the hills, perspire and tire, and....after 2 minutes jump into the sea, but just like you say:

and suddenly realise that there is another world, deep sea, almost without a sound, with lot of exotic fish, so different but also so beautiful.
The problem is that I am a better diver than player :)
but
thank you. I am very happy that you listen to me and give me your benevolence. :merci:

Nice accurate playing - very good :bravo:
The cadenza section has the right kind of 'free' feeling about it.
If you want some thoughts about how to improve the performance I'd suggest:
1) Try and find a lute performance to help you think about the style of playing; this might lead you to want to slow it down a little and try and get a more legato approach.
2) Consider arpeggiating the block chord section - again lutenists usually do this and it is likely to be what Weiss intended.

Thanks pogmoor.

I will follow your advice and do some searching for the lutenist versions. For tempo, for cadenza part,...

I am agree with you, maybe I play it little faster that is needed. Maybe because of that I have some emphasis problem about 25 measure and I must correct that part also.

About arpeggiating I have no doubt that you talking right. I always ask myself when is appropriate to use it or not, is there any hidden rule?
I really have an opportunity to learn a lot of things with all of your posts. Good for me! :delcamp_fiesta:

:) haha, Goran - thank you; I am very happy that you like it and I hope that you will play this fantastic piece.
Because,... it is good to be on the mountains - but to be near lake with the guitar is good too :)
