Another beautiful performance, Denian, thank you. I just listen to it. You are right on with rest strokes on the melody !!
Yes I think, this piece one should have on the list in the repertoire. Many people have heard it. It is emotionally loaded with feelings attached to the movie "the deer hunter". The same thing with Romance anonymous, which is know through the movie "Jeux interdid".
Why? I think this could be an ice-breaker for those who are normally not so deeply involved into classical music and rather listen to other stuff. A performer sometimes has to act like a magician. First play something people know, even in their unconscuesness. Then, they will listen to more, even unfamiliar sounds or rhythms. But; then, you have to come back again to familiar things. It is a risk you take. People nowadays are so used to press a button and music is available everywhere without a thought of how hard it is for a serious musician to learn a piece till its ready to be performed. It is kind of sad though.
Sooner or later I will be able to play it. But it will still be a long while and I don't know it it even will be so beautiful like yours.
