Thanks, Roger . Yes, it took me some time to improve the #1 (and others, as well). This Project has been quite helpful for me. Among other things (I'm better at sight reading, now) it forced me to start using the metronome to steady my rhythm. Concerning the use of the metronome and how it can really help, you have to read the post of 2handband dated 12-Dec-2016 (16:57h) on page 7 of this thread.Chariot0 wrote: ↑Tue Dec 05, 2017 9:09 pmThank you for the reply Jorge! I have to respectfully disagree with you about not going back to the beginning though. It is quite a bit of work and there are a lot of posts but there is excellent feedback and really useful material for new students and anyone interested in playing these pieces. Especially the advice by Rob MacKillop (so far as of Page 14). I also really enjoyed listening to your progress of No 1. You had some really remarkable progress.
Very well, Roger, good tone, good tempo, good recording . Just noticed a small hesitation in the repetition of measure 10, but this is nothing. You should now proceed to #2, there is a long road ahead... .Chariot0 wrote: ↑Fri Dec 08, 2017 2:14 pmHere is my first submission. Op 60 Nr 1.
W@elcome to this thread, Chariot0. Thank you for sharing your first recording for this thread. I enjoyed your tone, tempo, and especially articulation. You brought out the melody nicely especially in the second part. And, of course, I noticed a minor insecurity on the repetition of measure 10. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your posting of Opus 60 No. 2. I know that Jorge Oliveira said essentially the same thing, but I did not even look at his comments until I had already formulated mine. And we look for slightly different things. Jorge is strict about playing wrong notes or inaccurate timing (at least, with my playing); I tend to listen to the articulation (one of your strong points) and overall affect. By the way, Jorge and Henny's comments have been big factors in improving my playing. Keep up the good work.
Thanks, mainterm, for the tip. I wrote it in my copy of the score. I will try that. I understand the benefit.mainterm wrote: ↑Mon Dec 04, 2017 11:52 pmTry adjusting the RH pattern so that you don't have to repeat with "a" from the 1/16th E to G quarter.
Interestingly Aguago - who is a real big fan of this sort of dotted rhythms, goes out of his way at times to indicate that the 32nd note after a dotted 16th (for example) should be played with 'i'.
Try that - play the 16th with 'i' instead of 'a'.
