New recordings!Posted: 12 April 2012
It’s almost time for another harp lesson so I decided to record a few pieces today. It’s a good exercise for playing everything as correctly as possible. Of course, it fails quite some times – there’s a kind of running commentary in my head pointing out all of the issues and then I forget the notes even though I know the pieces by heart etc.
This is the Siciliana from the Petite Suite by Grandjany. I really like this pieces but it is HARD to play it well and to make it interesting. In the recording, my attempts at dynamics failed a bit because I was trying not to forget the notes like I did in the previous 8 takes.
Danses d’ Automne 3. I am really ready to move on to something new, unless my teacher has some interesting perspective to offer… It is not close to being ‘finished’ but I’ve working on this so long without getting adequate feedback to make it sound better. But at least, it sounds a bit like one piece now.
The last song from Automates! That means I’ve finished a book when I’ve finished this one. But it’s not finished yet, I’ve only studied it for a few weeks.
A bit of folk! This is a breton dance called a ridee. I really like the vibe of the bass! It is hard to play correctly when recording, though…
