Vivaldi, Antonio - R 93 Concerto in D Major - Video

Post by David Norton » Fri Jul 14, 2017 12:40 pm

A performance done on Sunday July 9 2017, at South Valley Unitarian Universalist Society, Salt Lake City, UT. The three movements were done as Prelude, Offering, and Postlude, so you'll notice some differences in the window shadowing in each section.

Piano: Ricklen Nobis (Yamaha piano)
Guitar: David Norton (Johnny Walker guitar)

Allegro giusto: 0:23
Largo: 5:01
Allegro: 9:28

The camera is mounted in the back of the church so there's [regrettably] a fair amount of ambient noise to deal with.

THANK YOU TO WESJR1 for culling out the music portions from the much longer master video!!

Would have loved to hear this with some closer micing, but I could still hear the quality of the playing. Thanks for sharing.

LOL. So would I. We may well do it again on guitar/harpsichord in autumn, in a proper hall setting.

That would be good - especially if you could get it nicely recorded :)

Is that the right rhythm at the beginning - shouldn't they be demisemiquavers? It rather loses its verve without them :? Any ways nice to have a bit of chamber music.

You're correct. However Rick and I are both "Old Bleeps", and decided we prefer it with the pulse we used.

In context, some years ago, Rick accompanied Pepe Romero on an 11-show Latin America tour (harpsichord/guitar) and told me this was the preferred pulse for Pepe. So that's a good benchmark for my ears.

Wires crossed? I was referring to rhythm rather pulse. I love Pepe's playing,especially Rodrigo. in fact I saw him at his wigmore hall debut in 1993 and it was remarked as " a concert of a thousand fingers" in the cig write up and they weren't wrong!

I understand what you're referencing. The two approaches to the rhythm here are these:

Rick and I use the left-side one, although the score is written and more correctly played as shown on the right. According to Rick, Pepe preferred the left-side approach when they did that tour. He probably learned it that way from his dad, as this was the rhythm commonly used in pre-HIP days. Also, from a strictly practical aspect, I simply can't cleanly articulate LH slurs as written on the right, my left pinky foreknuckle locks up. I need that extra millisecond and slower approach to get it right. And a fair number of times I don't slur at all, and play all three notes right handed. Just a glitch in my finger physiology. :roll:

There's a plan afoot for another CD, this time Chamber Music in addition to guitar duos with Cindy Spell. Very much in the "thinking it through" stages.

:bravo: David. You played very well. :casque:

Pity about the sound quality. Make sure it's better next time! :)
