Nice work.

Not sure what Legnani thinks is so "facile" about it, but to each his own! :)

Great, brilliant.
Thanks for posting.

I went up into the attic and found a Stradivarius and a Rembrandt.
Unfortunately Stradivarius was a terrible painter and Rembrandt made lousy violins.

Isaac,
Thanks for that amazingly lucid interpretation.
This piece seems to be a crucible for the current generation of concert players.
Question: Do you remember when you first heard it?

Thank you, all.
Steve - I know what you mean. The first time I heard this piece was at the University of Texas during repertory class almost 10 yrs ago and many, many times since then.

Speaking of which, I probably haven't seen you in about 10 years. Hope you're well!

I am quite well. Still in love with guitar and building more and better. Maybe catchup with you in LA for the GAL... I think we actually touched base at the Austin GFA too. I cannot say for sure who I heard it from first.

Thanks, John! I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
I actually really love this piece for how representative it is of the period and style! It's really fun to play.

Bravo Isaac very well executed. I like your way of exaggerating the sentences.
The accents are very interesting characteristic of this beautiful Italian period. :bravo:

I hope it is not a breach of etiquiette, but I have been watching another video where Pavel Steidl does a master class on this piece with a student for about 20 minutes. The lesson really helped me understand the musical challenges of the piece and appreciate Isaac's interpretation from additional perspectives.
