Yes, the 2nd string note should be c# instead of d. It's amazing how one wrong note changed the chord completely, and what's even more amazing is that after that wrong chord, the next one also sounded different (although it was correct)!Mark Bacon wrote:I think you play the wrong chord in the Carulli piece in measure 9.
Also the first melody note in measure 15 should be a# instead of a. Same as in next measure.Mark Bacon wrote:In the morin piece the bass note is C# in measure 15, then a C natural in 16. You play natural both times and lose that dramatic walk down in the bass C#, C, B.
In my opinion the accelerandos and decelerandos were a bit extreme. It sounded like you were constantly switching between a slower and faster tempo, so that if I was asked what was your tempo in BPM's, I couldn't give a straight answer. I think the main reason for that is that you start with an accelerando, which makes me as a listener think that the top tempo you achieve during measure one is your "nominal" tempo, and then the slow down during measure 2 is use of rubato. Then you do the same thing for measures 3 and 4, but for the remaining measures of the first part, you stay at the lower tempo, which sounds like the rubato is going on for really long. All this confusion comes from the fact that the accelerando in the first bar made me think that your nominal tempo is much higher than it really is. Therefore I think it's always important not to modify the tempo during the first couple of measures, so that the listener has time to get "locked in" to your tempo.
Other than that, I think it was really well played!
