Ferrer, José - op.05/05 Vals

Post by tateharmann » Fri Feb 08, 2019 11:14 pm

Here's a nice little piece by Ferrer. Actually, there are 10 little gems in this opus 5 called "El Ramillete Diez Pequeñas Piezas Para Guitarra."

This is a rough draft of this waltz that I'd like to polish up and play it nice someday haha. This recording has some hesitations and other sounds that I'm not satisfied with, but here it is warts and all :)

Nice playing, Tate. The A section is meh, but the B section is much more interesting.

Really nice, and sweetly played ! I listened on YT a little Vals played by students of Trinity College (Simon Davies and others). Ferrer's pieces are freefrom rights I think, but I can't find this piece...if you can help ? Anyway, bravo for your playing !

Sorry...no, it's not. The Vals I'm speaking is a very short one (about 50 seconds). It's given for grade 2 only, but the melody is really cute. It begins with something like Mi Fa# Mi Do# La...Thanks for the try :discussion: :bye:

Sorry Lysiane! I misread your post! Do you have a link to the YT video of the waltz?

Thank you "tateharmann", this is it :
Thanks for sharing that - it's a nice little piece! I researched this a bit and it seems that it falls in part A of Grade 2 of Trinity College Guitar Program. I downloaded the syllabus and there are actually two valses by Ferrer in part A. One has no source listed, and the other lists David Burden's book called "The Young Guitarist's Progress Part 2" as the source. Here's what the author says regarding the Ferrer works:
"It also includes recently rediscovered works by Jose Ferrer, some published for the first time."

I own a number of these David Burden books but unfortunately, I don't own this particular one. If I did I would have no problem sharing this piece with you privately. In fact, I've even inquired as to the implications of sharing a lot of this newly discovered Ferrer music publicly here: https://classicalguitardelcamp.com/view ... 6094b11f1e

I've also recorded some of these other lesser known Ferrer works and posted on Delcamp here: https://classicalguitardelcamp.com/view ... 6094b11f1e
https://classicalguitardelcamp.com/view ... 6094b11f1e

Thus far, these little pieces have been a source of frustration for many as they are currently located at the Royal Academy of Music London and it seems they've only been published by David Burden in his books. This topic is an interesting read here if you are interested: https://classicalguitardelcamp.com/view ... 6094b11f1e

:bye: Dear tateharmann, I just posted a private message when I saw this above...I have to understand it, I mean, to translate in French, and it's not that easy. When I understand all, I'll write back. In fact, I tried to find it in the "syllabus", but...I think that as Ferrer's works are free, it's not wemme of Trinity College to ask us to buy his entire book...I would like to find another way. So long.... :bye:

No problem at all Lysiane :)

The good news is that the piece you'd like to learn is very simple and with the good videos that exist of it, it will be easy to transcribe by ear. I could see about doing that in the coming weeks.

Au revoir!
