Sor, Fernando - op.35/01 Andante

Postby powderedtoastman » Sat May 21, 2016 6:17 am

Hello guys! Here's my rendition of Sor op. 35 no. 1 which I love to use as one of my easy warm up pieces. I hope I did OK with it and I hope you like it!
I am studying a more involved Sor work that I'd like to be able to perform so eventually I'll come back with a recording of that I hope!

Hi powerderedtoastman,

I've always like playing and listening to these etudes by Sor and you play this one really nicely. Well done.

Just out of curiosity, what is the more involved Sor piece that you're working on?

Regards,
Paul

Hi Paul, thanks!

I am working on Op. 8, 6 Divertimentos, and I aim to play all six of them! I started with a facsimile version that's available online, but I'm now using the Tecla edition put together by Brian Jeffery. I think it's a very nice work and I hope to use it to really learn to bring out my musical interpretation and expression!

Hi powerderedtoastman. Welcome to the forum. Many thanks for contributing your recording so early. These recordings are an important part of the forum, entirely dependent on the participation of members.

I enjoyed your playing of this well-known study. It gives beginners something to work towards.

Thanks, guys!
I actually discovered this one a couple or three months ago because somebody (I think Marieh) had posted it in the "Our Scores" section of the forum and I sometimes like to pick up these simple pieces that can be sight read easily, but are still actually nice little pieces of music in their own right. This one really made me happy in that regard!

What I found was that I could more or less play all the notes after a couple times through, but it actually did take a bit of effort to go back and gain control over articulation, dynamics and expression (mostly) to my satisfaction. It was exactly the right piece to pick up for where I am in my playing right now, because it actually was a nice platform to work on execution and expression!
