[Youtube] J.S.Bach Chaconne

Couldn't find this video of Sanel Redzic playing the Chaconne on the forum.

This is a really good performance and stands out I think among the many versions of this available. Every note considered, clearly well thought out and flawless playing. Even if you're not a fan of the piece of you've heard it many times it's worth checking this out.

Certainly well-played. I have a slight preference for Raphaella Smits' rendition on an 8-string guitar, though. :merci:

I noticed Sanel's youtube channel some time ago and quite like his playing. There is a new video of his, playing the entire BWV 1004.

The Chaconne is


You can notice how much he developed as a player over the 5 years between the two recordings.

For me the Marc Teichholz recording


and the Raphaella Smits recording

are the ones to beat. I can not make up my mind between the two. I heard many recordings and have a couple of CDs home (incl Bream and Yepes). Part of this might be that the above youtubes are live recordings in concert, capturing the spirit of the moment, and not an in "studio affair" with all the behind the scenes editing.

For a wonderful live rendering, check out this:



The smooth fast runs are just one of the merits of Palmer's interpretation, and not the most important.

Discuss with your tutor. Mine is strongly opposed to trying pieces that are way beyond your level. The bad habits you got when doing so might be very difficult to unlearn. As a result you might never be able to play the piece as well as if you had waited to have the technical skills required.

You might be right-thanks. At the rate I'm going, I may never be able to play it. I've been composing my own pieces mainly by ear and some are sounding pretty good. And it feels great. I might over embellish a bit but I've experienced a sense of freedom in my playing I didn't have before and there're right about saying you learn more when writing your own compositions. I recently ordered a cd and piano music to go with it from Michele McLaughlin and making arrangements for cg. But the point is, I had an opportunity to talk with her about writing pieces for the guitar and she, interestingly enough, said she does not write music or read any notes. She pays to have her work transcribed for her. So, she writes and plays completely by ear and can't read music...and she sounds great. Gave me the idea and it works and very rewarding-I can read music and I write it down and it's my real belief I will compose a famous piece just like the big boys...don't laugh it may be true.
Regards,
David

Probably the best guitar performance I've yet heard of the Chaconne. Thank you very much for the link.
