Sor, Fernando - op.35/02 Andantino

Post by powderedtoastman » Sat May 21, 2016 6:20 am

Hello again! Here's number 2 of op. 35 to go with the number 1 I just posted!
There's a minor technical glitch the second time around the B section, where I cut the high g note short but I think I'm otherwise happy with this take.. I hope I did it some justice! Suggestions are welcome if I can do better with expression, dynamics, or general execution.

Another great performance. I especially liked how you varied the dynamics and tone on the repeats for each section.

A couple of things you might like to consider:

1. There are quaver rests in the last bar of each sections which are best observed by muting the strings rather than letting the octave C's ring out as you have done.

2. You could also add a ritardando or even a ritenuto in the last couple of bars of each section to better define the end of each section.

My other thought (and others may disagree) is that you could try playing it a tad slower. There's no issue with how cleanly you are playing it at your chosen temp. It just feels a little rushed to me?

Thanks for the good feedback Paul! I think you may be right, I'm just pushing the fast end of andantino here. I think my tendency to rush this one may have to do with my right hand fingering and where I have given in to the temptation to repeat fingers on the higher voicing, especially in the second section.

I'll take another look at the score and watch out for those rests as well, I guess I had memorized the notes and missed that detail as I often tend to do!

Cheers!
