Falkenhagen, Adam - op.01/04 Sonata in g minor - Dresden guitar - Video

Here is the first movement of Falkenhagen's g minor sonata, Largo. I'm performing this on a 13 string basla core double top Thames Dresden guitar that I received last December. I'll post the other 2 movements once they are recorded.

Enjoyed your performance. I really like the sound of those basses on that guitar.
:merci:

ps. if you only place the _zWwtW_DclA (without the http://www.youtu.be/) between the youtube tags things should work on these page. I always make the same mistake before previewing.

Thanks. I made that fix. Looks like it was working fine before on my Mac but not my smartphone.

Thanks for sharing your performance. Your guitar has a nice sound, very well suited for late baroque music. And your interpretation was beautiful.

Thank you for the words of encouragement, Alain, Luuttuaja, and Bert! For the fourth string, I'm currently using a Savarez 97 which has some intonation issues, but the tension is quite good. The previous Boston Catlines 4th string was really fat and floppy and wouldn't project at all. I've tried the wound 4th that you use, but my right hand was getting too confused on hitting the right strings (too much influence from having the 4th course not wound on baroque lute). I have Seagar Premier 1.05 mm fluorocarbon arriving this week that I'll try out which I've heard has excellent intonation. It will have about 15 pounds of tension tuned to F at 415Hz.
