This is really fantastic. I just found about your recordings, and this is superb. I've been working on this piece for 4 years, and am working on it even more, for a guitar competition I'm trying to get into. And it never seems that I can master it. It is THE hardest piece in my repertoire, harder than pieces like the Fandango by Rodrigo, or Albeniz's Sevilla, etc. (Maybe this is saying more to my inability than my ability though... :lol: )

I always have another phrase to bring out, another line of music that has to be clearer, have to make this rift cleaner, etc. What I like about the music that you've recorded, is that in a lot of ways it is different than, for example how I play it, or Williams, or Parkening, or Barrueco, (In playing it, I think you are closest to Barrueco's style,) but you understand the phrasing wonderfully and you have your own interpretation for it. (Hope you don't mind my comparing you to these, or to myself... :wink: ) Also I get my own ideas of interpretations from your playing, that I may, ahem, borrow... :mrgreen:

I notice you don't do a lot of slurs to in the piece, is that something that you've decided not emphasize? I know that there is a school of thought that with Baroque music, that for example with piece there would be no slurs. Also, if you don't mind my asking, did you record this in one take, or did you do several takes and cut the best sections out for the whole piece? What's the best way to do that?

Great playing, and excellent musicianship, I'll soon be listening to your other recordings :casque: and be commenting on them as well. :D

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, when this was first posted, I said this was the best ever -- Now hear ye all newbies to Delcamp, BUMP, I plead with you to listen to a true masterpiece. This is a magical performance that sustains its power every single time. It is ageless beauty. Owl maintains a special place in my soul for this contribution.

Yup, I agree with you CI; just got back to browsing the forums after a long absence and one of the first things I did was to see whether or not owl had uploaded more of her playing. I was very happy to find more of her music on the forum. :D

Thank you so much, owl! :bye:

Hi Samuel, thanks for listening and taking the time to comment
As with all of my music (along with my teacher), I make decisions on how a movement should be played depending on the suite as a whole, and this is how I feel the music is best served

The entire suite was recorded in one take... I can tell you it was a very hard day!!! :chaud:
And it was not edited... I know there are also different schools of thought on this but it is something I feel quite strongly about and I don't do it!
Each to their own of course, but it's not a practice I agree with
Thanks again for your comments and I'm happy you enjoyed the music :D

Hello Charles old friend... thanks as always for your continued support
You know how I value your thoughts and opinion

Thanks for listening Ramsey... I'm glad you like the music

Hi Trys, how nice to see you again... it's been too long mate
Happy to play for you as always :mrgreen:

Thank you lagartija... it's always a pleasure to hear from you, and I'm very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the music

Thank you montana high praise indeed
It's always my intention to play the music as I think the composer would want... I'm happy you feel that

Thank you all so much and.............
Joy in the music

I really enjoy your recordings, owl! Note perfect and musical! How long have you been playing? Do you mind if I ask which state of Australia you're from? I haven't heard many players with accuracy like yours in Australia yet!
