It is the first movement of the adaptation of the Partita No.3 in E Major for violin... said to be adapted by Bach himself for the lute
This piece needs an assertive attack... it is amazing music to play... it is a clarion call ... an announcement... the call needs to be demanding and strong... an invitation to what follows.
Of course this is how I feel it should be... the suite tells a story for me but you might feel differently about it... that is of course your prerogative.
As usual it has been sitting on my desktop for a little while
I have mentioned several times that I have had some pieces recorded in my teachers studio by a professional sound technician using professional equipment so I guess you would say that this is semi-professionally recorded.
The sound just blows me away... my guitar is all silver and black velvet... she sounds amazing!
I hope compressing it to mp3 doesn’t interfere too much with the quality and that you enjoy the music
Joy in the music
Great recording and interpretation. I am currently working on this piece and I was wondering how long it took you to play it like that.
