Enesco Orchestra suite no.1 opus 9 Prelude unisono. 2th attempt

May 25, 2008 08:41


My 2th attempt on Enesco Orchestra suite no.1 opus 9 Prelude unisono. Although it takes several times before I got a take without big mistakes with all those flageolettes and high notes and appoggiatura's, the video is too dark, but now you can see my garden.
With Windows Movie Maker I cut off the start and the end of the .wmv-video form the original .avi-video.
I still have to work on my bowing and intonation (and the light in the video).

My first Youtube entry

May 10, 2008 17:54

Tonight (2.30) I came back from the Elisabeth competition first round for singing and I saw tha in the same time my videao was uploaded on Youtube with my camera with which I can make films and record sound. Yesterday I played this piece and I am so happy that with my frozen shoulder I can bow a little bit again. I played the piece 3 times and recorded it the last time, but it was still too much for my arm. The last 3 months I played with my elbow against my chest in orchestra's.
OK I played it quite bad and also with my right arm in right condition my bowing is still poor. Here I see that the bow is not 100% vertical on the strings. Also I missed some (high)notes, so perhaps after some studying and with help of my violintecher I can reach a little bit higher level.
But most important is that I like the piece, I heard on a cd of Aaron Rosand. I made a copy of a conductor score so now I have the notes (and on pdf, so I can mail it if you want). This Prelude unisono opus 9 is an orchestrasuite number1 for violins, viola's and timpani, but it is also suitable for an encorepiece for soloviolin, I think a better one than the too well known Rondo de Lutins of Bazzini (you need a piano for that piece, quite difficult after a violinconcerto) and much much MUCH better and suitable than a sonate or Partita of Bach, you learned on the conservatory.
So I hope much much MUCH better violinists than me will play this piece, because with a good technique and good bowing this piece sounds good with that Ging several times. There are also 2 times slower orchestra version on
Enesco on Youtube in 8.39 minutes
(I needed 4.30 minutes)
and on cd, but it need this speed from Aaron Rosand.(He needs 4.04 minutes on his cd CDX 5102 VoxBox)
