Carcassi, Matteo - op.07 Au Clair De La Lune - D08

Post by Bertran » Mon Oct 03, 2016 11:10 pm

Oh, no, it is "boring" school-minded Carcassi again -...- this is what I'm thinking when I took this piece.
It consist of: Thema + 9 var + Finale
and when you listen just introducing (simple) Thema - you will understand my ungrateful reluctance.

At those thoughts on my mind I will start to learn this piece, playing 1th var, than 2th, ... and after some time I start to realize that higher variations are not simple at all!

I remember that our dear member Jouni once upon a time wrote that Carcassi is unfairly underrated.
After couple of months of practice I think that this piece can explain to me how great he was and how small I cannot be!

It's always a pleasure to hear you playing Bertran, you put a lot into your music.

I didn't even realise that Carcassi had done variations on Au Clair De La Lune, so, great to hear something different.

What caused you to dedicate the time and energy into learning this composition?

Thanks Isaballe Frizac, Big bird and DaveLlyod,

I am glad you like it.
Isabelle, I am sure that you will find this composition very useful and and that you will enjoy.
Dave, outside Delcamp's version I have another source with title "Variations about a French Air". It is probably the reason why it is easy to jump over it.

David_Norton,

Thank you for your time and your post.
I am very satisfied with concept and content of Delcamp's first 10 books. Before 6 years I decide to start from D01 with every next Dxx, piece-by-piece and see where is my limit.

If you can jump to this topic
viewtopic.php?f=130&t=47193
and look around a while - I hope that you will have a better explanation why I bite this piece like a faithful dog. :)

It is my honor Terry!
If you mean at "Voting"-topic I hope that topic will not disappear before I finish D08,....cause I will need a lot of time and effort to reach last page. :)

I just followed that link as well. I knew you were systematically working your way through the Delcamp lessons Bertran, but I had no idea as to your level of commitment.

I have to agree with Terry — Very impressive!

Bertran, well done! Your playing was rhythmically articulate and expressive. A few of those variations are quite virtuosic and you handled them with ease. Kudos.

Thank you DaveLloyd, once again.

Lawler,
I read and think of everything you wrote and I'm really grateful to you.
There is a lot of thing that I can and I try to improve. But, the word "expressive" I must single out from your post. Practice and effort are very important but our feelings and understanding of music is next step. Reading your post, I use to believe that I am on the right path and thank you for that encouragement.
