...I think you are already doing a good job with the piece, but would suggest to start letting loose on the strict metronomic pulse and start playing with the music a little; you may want to take some cues from Nick's beautiful rendition.
Hi Alexander, I hope you sorted out the difficulty in hearing my renditions in your PC without distortion. If not, a pair of reasonable earphones will be enough, I'm convinced.
So, I accepted your challenge above and and in my #1 (V2) below I increased significantly the tempo - from 1/4 = 125 bpm to, roughly, 1/4 = 160 bpm -, played without a metronome in my ear
, accented some notes and subdued others, slowed momentarily in m.24 and also towards the end as well, and, in the last measure, I followed the indication of mainterm
to let the last C bass to ring alone. When played faster, the musicality in the piece comes alive, no doubt, but then, I wonder why Sor stated that it should be played in Andante
But perhaps 160 bpm is way too fast, you will tell me.
The record was produced with the Zoom Handy Recorder app on my iPhone X, the sound capture being made by an iRig microphone that connects directly to the iPhone via a Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter. The guitar used was my Hermanos Camps Master No. 3 (1984), fitted with Knobloch Actives Carbon CX, High Tension strings. The resulting .wav
file was then processed with the Audacity audio editor on Windows 10 to produce the .wma
files below. Apart from cutting and splicing the audio wave file to eliminate some not so well succeeded sections, no special effects were added during the recording and editing sessions.
