Post by joaocarlosvictor » Sat Jan 23, 2016 10:56 pm

Dear friends,

I would like to share with you this video I recorded last year. The piece is Fernando Sor´s Andante Largo op.5 n.5 and I played it on a Carlos Gomes Valentim Guitar hommage a Daniel Friederich:
Youtube

There is small interview before, I start to play at min 01:45.
Hope you enjoy it.

Playing Sor is harder than it looks. Excellent sound, and excellent timing. Well done.

Excellent, João Carlos! Thanks for sharing here with us. That guitar sounds incredible, by the way.

I have not heard this played in a long time. I love this piece. Don't hear it played often anymore. I love your interpretation and beautiful tone. Very relaxed and expressive. Thank you.

Wonderful! I can’t imagine this being better played—so lyrical and elegant and perfectly paced. And what a liquid, beautiful tone that suits this music so well.

João: amazing sound, amazing touch. I 'rewind' it three times. Perfect.
A big thank you for this moment.
Cheers,

You are right Tom! Sor´s music is very transparent, so one need to work a lot to have everything under the control and at the same time let the music speak for itself. It is a life working process that never ends...

One of my favorite Sor pieces that doesn't get played much. I really liked this version, perfect tempo :)

Great job on a challenging piece. This little gem requires a lot of stretching in the left hand. I first came across it in Fredrick Noad's Classical Guitar collection when I first starting playing. A bit advanced for a beginner, but I loved the harmonies and the contrast in the key change for the second section.

I think you not only got the technique, you also captured the mood and feeling of the piece.

Many thanks!
