These are my recording assignments hop you like it.
Hope you like it please
Without a doubt your Adante Affettuosoen was, to my ear, your best submission. My guess is that you really enjoy playing that piece. It is too bad your recordings have the background static that distracts from your playing. I know it sounds much better in person.
I would like to comment on your tempo. On the one hand it is good to slow certain pieces down and speed them up at will to suit your ear and express the piece in your own personal way, but one should be wary about letting technical ability rather than artistic expression dictate the variation. With the Sor piece I believe you are rushing the easy bits and slowing the difficult ones as indeed is a natural tendency when we learn a piece but one which must be fought. You should never play a piece at a faster tempo than you are able to maintain throughout. Indeed I often see virtuoso's who know pieces thoroughly advice that students and experts alike need to slow down a piece from time to time in order to better perfect their technique. Speed always follows technique. I would rather hear you play Allegeretto at a too slow but even tempo with an emphasis on clean execution and perfect cadence. This is not to suggest that you should always learn a piece using strict timing for there is much debate about that, but I think difficult measures at least should be practiced that way when isolated as an exercise in itself. Your scale exercise I maintain should always be executed with strict tempo. The first and last notes in those passages take up twice the time value as the other notes, but you are playing them at only about 150% duration. I would therefore encourage you to use a metronome (download a free app).
For clarity, I like what I hear, I would just like it a lot better if the timing was more disciplined.
Keep up the good work.
