An excerpt from last night's practice - the Romanze from Mertz' method. Gut strings - no nails.

Very nicely played, great tone. Single take, or multiple with edits?

Thanks David! I often do multiples with edits but this one is a single take from a practice session ;)

Great job! Nice full tone (very impressive without nails). Loved the leisurely, relaxed tempo.

Well done, nice sound and playing. I'm a bit confused about whether Mertz should go in the classical or the romantic forum. The romantic forum says:
Audio and video recordings of romantic and modern music (1850-1940, e.g. Albéniz, Barrios, Coste, Mertz, Llobet).
But most of his life and work is from before 1850!

Thank you! Yea, I've always been a bit confused by that too. A couple other composers show up in both classical and romantic period areas: Coste and Cano. I think chronologically and stylistically, Mertz should be in the posted classical period area. But he's technically an overlapping composer so I guess either is fine?

I love it ! The timing is pleasantly suspended, it recalls peace and reverie
