Carcassi, Matteo - op.07 Au Clair De La Lune - D08

Postby Bertran » Mon Oct 03, 2016 11:10 pm

Oh, no, it is "boring" school-minded Carcassi again -...- this is what I'm thinking when I took this piece.
It consist of: Thema + 9 var + Finale
and when you listen just introducing (simple) Thema - you will understand my ungrateful reluctance.

At those thoughts on my mind I will start to learn this piece, playing 1th var, than 2th, ... and after some time I start to realize that higher variations are not simple at all!

I remember that our dear member Jouni once upon a time wrote that Carcassi is unfairly underrated.
After couple of months of practice I think that this piece can explain to me how great he was and how small I cannot be!

It's always a pleasure to hear you playing Bertran, you put a lot into your music.

I didn't even realise that Carcassi had done variations on Au Clair De La Lune, so, great to hear something different.

Thanks Isaballe Frizac, Big bird and DaveLlyod,

I am glad you like it.
Isabelle, I am sure that you will find this composition very useful and and that you will enjoy.
Dave, outside Delcamp's version I have another source with title "Variations about a French Air". It is probably the reason why it is easy to jump over it.

David_Norton,

Thank you for your time and your post.
I am very satisfied with concept and content of Delcamp's first 10 books. Before 6 years I decide to start from D01 with every next Dxx, piece-by-piece and see where is my limit.

If you can jump to this topic
http://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/viewtopic.php?f=130&t=47193
and look around a while - I hope that you will have a better explanation why I bite this piece like a faithful dog. :)

It is my honor Terry!
If you mean at "Voting"-topic I hope that topic will not disappear before I finish D08,....cause I will need a lot of time and effort to reach last page. :)

I just followed that link as well. I knew you were systematically working your way through the Delcamp lessons Bertran, but I had no idea as to your level of commitment.

I have to agree with Terry — Very impressive!

Bertran, well done! Your playing was rhythmically articulate and expressive. A few of those variations are quite virtuosic and you handled them with ease. Kudos.

Thank you DaveLloyd, once again.

Lawler,
I read and think of everything you wrote and I'm really grateful to you.
There is a lot of thing that I can and I try to improve. But, the word "expressive" I must single out from your post. Practice and effort are very important but our feelings and understanding of music is next step. Reading your post, I use to believe that I am on the right path and thank you for that encouragement.
