Sor, Fernando - op.35/14 Etude in A minor

Post by Tom Poore » Fri Jan 08, 2016 9:34 pm

This attractive etude tackles the challenge of playing dotted rhythms. These are always hard for the right hand—one must take particular care to give them the bounce and snap they need, without inadvertently rounding them off. Not content with a single challenge, Sor also gives us the problem of articulating two voices that are doing different things at the same time.

... indeed, gives us a 4 bar canon at a minor 7th! - how many of those do you find every day?

Really nicely done. Plenty of snap and crackle in this. Did you do a couple of sly little 'up the neck' moves towards the end?

Guilty as charged. I call it “the fat part of the fingerboard.” Can’t resist it.

And I just learned how to synch the audio to sheet music on YouTube. So I’ve edited my initial post to show this.
