Marko, your execution is basically perfect! I really liked it!!!
In terms of suggestions, you can make sure the note durations are exact (I.e. not letting them ring) and repeated snippets could be diversified (tone or volume). Other than that kudos!

Cheers,

Michele

Thank you, Michele!

With note durations, I guess you're especially referring to upper voice starting with 1/8 rests in the first few measures of both parts? That's a good point, and although I guess I always saw those rests, I never really registered them, but instead tried to keep the melody as continuous as possible. You're right, that's not what the score says :contrat: I may revisit this piece some time in near future, and this is good to keep in mind.

Regarding the repeated snippets, that's actually part of what I meant by musically struggling with this piece. I don't want the tone/volume changes to sound completely random, and I'm having trouble coming up with something that makes sense, and is musically pleasing. Another side of it is that while focusing on bringing up the tempo to justify the "Allegro" (and still falling somewhat short), I haven't spend much thought with the musical considerations. There's clearly much to learn with this piece, but I think I need to not play this for a while to keep it interesting :D

Today I managed to record Sons de carillhões. I've been working with it almost exclusively for a few weeks now, building up some speed. There are few difficult positions shifts, and bringing out the melody is challenging.

I varied the repeats by adding some random mistakes :x :wink:

It is nicely done Marko, even with the random events
This is one of my top 3 to 5 favorite pieces from the D05 workbook, lots of great pieces n there.
