Carulli, Ferdinando - Andante, a-moll - D03

Postby Bertran » Wed Feb 24, 2010 10:44 am

This is a true story:

Once upon a time, in the Croatian land, at the time when elf were sleeping, I was very young boy that decide to play for my classroom fellow and my teacher.
At the same time I was president of my class elected by them. Before I started to play guitar I must say some kind of open speech for event, the Day is 31.12 (!!), new year is coming, and I said:
"I wish you a Happy New Independence Day!"

Oh, my Good! What a method to beat a performanse fear! :( My teacher spin with her eyes, everybody start to laughing at me. I wish that Earth open and hide me. Instead of that, I must sit and play a piece! :oops:
When I have finished, they appluad to me, my teacher yell one "bravo".


My guitar and mic are cheap but....you already know for that wound.
What you really don't know is that I really start to loving classical guitar with this famous piece. :)

KeMe,

Thank you for your kind words and understanding.
In my head, I hear my "story" whenever I play this piece.
And,...perhaps now I know more new techniques than when I was a child. Perhaps I play better. But at the same time I feel that I can not call back all that strong emotions while I play this Andante on that,... "Independence Day". :)

Hey,

really nice - well done.
I also played this piece, but not in concert or in front the class!

Two years ago I played Les Folies d'Espagne by Giuliani in front of my class - it was
our little Christmas party. The class applauded and also the teacher
was impressed. This was a great moment!

germanenator,

Thank you for listening, thank you for compliment. You should try, it is not so hard one, but it is lovely without doubt.

guitarlojak,
Thank you. And my compliment to you. Like you said ''This was a great moment!'' and I can only add '…and moment to lifetime remember''.
Playing for class have one additional quality: to be person different, of your own, to be someone special! Use that moments! :bye:

I do know this piece, and I am particularly fond of Carulli's compositions, but I was taken by your story and enjoyed your performance so much that I have looked out the score and have decided to add it to my repertoire.

jamiecrock,

I always have tiny smile on my face when I remember my unforgettable speech. :)
Also, when I hear that someone hear me and decide to learn the same piece,... for me - there is no better way to encourage me.

Thank you , Bertran
