Hi everyone! Alrighty, so here is a recording of a piece (g minor adagio, bach) I've been playing for a little bit more than a week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yebmUieGIHE&feature=youtu.be
I think I have most of notes down, somewhat at least, so gonna start working with a metronome. I just want some feedback so I know what to pay attention when I'm practicing. I want to practice accurately and efficiently this time. Nobody else has heard this yet, except maybe my not so happy neighbors!
I've been working on my tone lately, and although I think I've made some progress, I think my tone is overall still kind of bland. When I hear other people play this piece, they tend to sound a lot more "interesting" if that makes sense. I've been taking some advice on this board, and just putting more weight on my bow. Anything else I can do though?
Also, I was wondering whether or not my interpretation sounds a bit rough or outrageous and just not very bach like. I attack the string pretty aggressively, especially in the second half of the piece. A part of that is just not enough practice, but some of it is just my style right now, or maybe my technique. Often times, what I hear in the recording is not what I hear while playing. Any other feedback would be great(I can also post the fugue later gonna record tomorrow, and if this audio is not very helpful, I can post a video too).
