Hello Jouni,

I was hoping to see this posted soon!

Your performance is quite stunning and the perfect complement to the first two movements. I have just played the whole work through and it is a delight from beginning to end. Thank you once again!

Best wishes, V :D :bravo:

Bach would be very proud of your playing of his fine piece. I think that's the best Allegro I have ever heard. The Prelude and Fugue were equally impressive. Kudos, Jouni.

PS. I'm guessing you have 7=low A, making the fretting of those low notes a bit easier than if you had to reach to the 8th string to get them.

Many thanks to everyone!

Owl: 3 suites still left :D

Glen, nice to see you here, too. Yes, the 7th is A. The whole tuning is first six strings normal with drop-D, 7th=low A, 8th=low G, 9th=low B and 10th=re-entrant G, same as 6th@3rd fret with in standard. The Fugue needs the low G four times, that's why it's there. Also, as you said, the 7th=A is handy for fretting, in fact the low basses of Allegro are all played on 7th. Some nasty stretches there, but that's much better than trying to stop the ringing open bass notes in that speed.

Absolutely stunning, Jounis! Somehow, you make everthing sound easy!

Your separation and clarity of the voices is always amazing.

Congratulations on all three movements!

Wow, those basses are just great. Everything about this is just great. Thank you.

Videos? Ladies first! :D

Seriously, what I would like to see is more of "complete whatever", projects, recorded by an advanced player, like the Sor studies op.35 recorded by Wim. Carcassi studies op.60 is one example that cries for recording.

That was incredible! Thanks so much for playing that beautiful piece for us. :lol:

Very impressive. It's plenty fast without resorting to the "look Ma, no hands" school of playing that turns it into a meaningless etude. Congratulations on a wonderful interpretation and performance.
