Carulli, Ferdinando - op.331 Les trois jours

Post by sxedio » Sun Apr 05, 2009 6:36 pm

An epic from F.Carulli, that really convinced me he was a master composer. I wish I could play it better.

To really follow the story the piece is telling, look at the score:
Carulli, Ferdinando Les trois jours: pièce analogue aux événemens de trois mémorables journées 27, 28 et 29. juillet 1830: composée pour la guitare / par Ferd. Carulli: Opus 331

Wow, that sure brings back alot of memories sxedio! This was one of the first Carulli pieces I ever saw. It was part of a book of various pieces from the period. I was about 14 and was fascinated by the fact that it was "programatic". I thought that was SO cool, and tried to put as much drama into playing it as a 14 year old could!

You've done a fine job of recording it! :bravo:

(I like the way you left the page turn in there :D)

Thanks. Made my day,

Alan

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

Alan (Tarbaby) did you not play the easy pieces from Carulli's method as a beginner?
I also quite like the fact it is programmatic, funny how all the diminished sevenths are used to indicate general disorder :)

Beautiful performance! And the music is great!

The Allegretto in the end is beautiful, but the basses don't sounded very clearly ... Try to improve it ...

Congratulations :casque:

thanks for your feedback josihell. There's so much movement up and down the fretboard that it's a bit hit and miss I'm afraid. I should really memorise the tricky bits and look at the fretboard at that point.

Wonderful playing. I have a "thing" for Carulli, Guiliani, and Carcassi. I guess I'm stuck in the 19th century. ;=) Normally with Carulli all you hear are the simple pieces (which I enjoy playing). It is a treat to have your wonderful performance of a more challenging piece. Thanks for this!!

Thanks KeMe and drunningw. I started learning guitar many years ago with the Carulli method. Though I enjoyed the tunes I didn't think much of Carulli as a composer. The comments on him in the early romantic guitar site, in combination with the "Is Carulli worthless?" debate on this site made me keep an eye for Carulli performance works, and then I cam across this piece. It is very interesting among other things in the extended use of the diminished seventh chord. I'm glad that my non ideal recording at least shows this other side of Carulli to people in this forum. Owl has done a brilliant work with the recently posted Giuliani piece, another similarly known-unknown composer.

wow I am impressed !!!!

you played it very mayestically. Especially the Marche Parisienne !!! gratulations !!!! :bravo: :bravo: :bravo:

I wonder what happened 1830 on that 3 day journey. Does he refer to the french revolution (1789 - 1799)? Was he a political person?
It really made me curious.

Great composition I thought !!
