Welcome everyone joining us for the new year's lessons.
Note that one of the pieces has changed so don't post exactly what last year's students posted.

Sounds good. Trust you to be 1st to post!
Have you mastered the pieces yet :lol:
I'm finding I can sightread (slowly) much better than when I started D01, so progress. Polishing will be something else.

Hi Chu, yeah, it was a bit surprising :) A private message from moderators to students would be great :)

There was a post from the prof explaining.
Unfortunately the PM system doesn't allow me to create a mail list for all the students in the 3 groups I moderate, so I would have to do an individual Mail to each person, that's about 40 pms. I only noticed because I subscribe to the topics in the student lesson area.

Thank you Colin,

Not sure about mastered - I'm at the stage where I can play both pieces without referring to the music, so hope to be posting within the next few days.

Nice to hear you are making good progress Colin, I look forward to hearing you play.

I've also joined the french D04 so will be posting on both sides of the channel. Just hope I can remember my schoolboy french from half a century ago.

That's an interesting idea, I might read the posts there and see what ideas are going around. I'm making an effort to learn french, but I recently did a translation of one of Prof Delcamp's posts and ran the original through google, the result was hard work to decipher.

Hi Dave, these are pretty hard exercises, you did pretty well in my opinion. The only thing is missing dynamics in Exercise #15 (f -> mf -> mp -> mf -f). I'll post my attempt soon, even though I tried my best, I was still not able to make it distinguishable...

Hi friends, it's been long time :)

Here is my 3/4 of the assignment:

- page 58 (D01) : Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) BUTÉ - APOYANDO - REST STROKE - APOYANDO

Youtube

This one is very difficult. I was not able to do thumb rest strokes in Exercise #16

- page 126 (D04) Delcamp, Jean-François Terminer - Fermare - Damp – Apagar

Youtube


- page 65 Giuliani, Mauro Allegro opus 50 n°13

Youtube

The most difficult part for me is thumb rest strokes here. I tried to do them all. It is barely distinguishable to the ear, but at you can see how bass strings stop vibrating.

Thank you for your comments Andrei, its very nice to see you back again.

I had a similar comment about my dynamics on the french forum, after I had been told off about posting too early. Then there was a comment about putting my LH thumb over the top in exercise 16. They sure are on the ball.
