The clouds broke just long enough tonight to get the new scope out under the stars. After a few minutes of getting oriented, I pointed the telescope to Saturn and was rewarded with an amazing crisp view of Saturn and her rings. Within fifteen minutes, the clouds had returned, and my maiden journey came to a quick close. But wow, what a great first experience.
Once I came back in, I resolved to finally get a presentable recording of the Fernando Sor piece posted. So, here it is:
Fernando Sor Opus 6 Number 8 MP3
There’s still plenty to be unhappy with in this recording and I plan to continue working on the piece. In my opinion, the main thing that could use improvement is intonation and clarity of the notes in a few sections. I’m also not altogether happy with the dynamics of the piece. I’m finding it tough to get as much variation in volume as I think would be appropriate.
Advice and comments are welcome.
However, I’m sufficiently pleased with Estudio 1 that I’m willing to start work on another of Sor’s pieces now.
