This is my rendition of the beautiful 'Tombeau sur la mort de M. Comte de Logy' written by S.L.Weiss for lute in B-minor based on the transcript for classical guitar in D-minor by Karl Scheit.

Guitar: Alexandru Marian 2013
Recorded on Tascam DR-680

One of my favourite pieces, and I've not heard the Scheit D minor arrangement played before - nicely done, and very effective :)
The only thing I am uncertain about is the tempo. I've always enjoyed listening to Bream's recording and I think he takes it about 10 bpm slower than you do.

Thanks for your comment. I don't go about the tempo in an academic way. I play the pieces for quite a while and a certain tempo emerges and stabilizes itself as the tempo that feels right to me. I kind of feel it like that. Of course the actual way I play it could be different from day to day a bit.

The theme of this piece seems to be about time and in the connection between time and dying there is a certain feeling of urgency that comes through to me in this piece.

I know most people play it slower.

:bravo:

Very nicely played with lovely tone. By chance I was looking at the score just this afternoon and decided I am not ready to tackle it for now. Your recording convinces me I should do at some stage.

As for the tempo, it sounded fine as it was, but I would probably play it a little slower.

Thanks for posting it.

That's a very interesting point; I hadn't thought of it before!

Hi George,

I would strongly encourage you to try tackling this piece as there isn't too much in the way of technical hurdles and it's very satisfying to play. I've had this piece in my repertoire since I was 14 and never seem to tire of it.

Great playing, thanks for sharing! I am on working on this piece right now (D-minor, Karl Scheit) and your recording helps a lot!

Thanks for your kinf words. I was using the Karl Scheit arrangement, too, and I think it's vseryeffektive for this piece.
