York, Andrew - 8 Discernments - Willow

Post by David McHarg » Thu Oct 14, 2010 5:02 pm

Hi,

I recently purchased the score of a number of pieces by Andrew York and since i made some recordings i thought i would share. I emailed Andrew York to get permission which he has kindly given ( See below ). Please note he has given permission for me to post recordings so this does not apply to others, just to avoid any forum issues.

This is a recording of a piece called "Willow" from Andrew Yorks collection called "8 Discernments". Hopefully i will get the time to post some others from this collection and other pieces of music by Andrew.

Hi David,
Permission granted, post away. Thanks for playing my pieces, and I'm glad you are enjoying them.
Best,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

I recently picked up the score for a number of pieces, just love them. I am amateur classical guitar player and i recently
made some small home recordings of some of your pieces and i would like to share these recordings with members of an
online classical guitar forum ( http://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/ ). The site operates very strict policies on copyright and recordings for music under copyright can only be posted with permission of the author/copyright owner hence why i am sending you this email.

Many thanks for your compositions/music, really wonderful and a joy to play.

Thanks
David.

Lovely, David! Very nice rendition. I own Andrew York's CD and bought the sheet music a few years ago as well.

Now its funny how you notice things you do in your recordings but i notice in the first few bars i am using a slur where i shouldn't be! Ah the joys of recording.

Does the use of the word "discernment" have a specific musical meaning here or is that Andrew being clever and leaving it up to his audience to decide? I would think the latter.

I am so frustrated with myself in trying to learn Equations In Beauty "e".
I just cant seem to smoothly add that melody to the initial rhythm.

York inspires me but also intimidates me. I love his compositions but most are just way beyond me.
