    That could be right, as I don't see them in the UME score.

    Not sure. To be pedantic about it, bringing out certain notes is fine but leaving out notes not.

    See image. This is from the UME score.

    I did play the top note--just brought out the middle note much more so perhaps it's hard for some people to hear.

    Oh, I have that note in my score too! Never saw it!! :shock:
    Thanks, I'll put a circle around it.

    Indeed. If it weren't so pathetic you'd have to laugh about it.

    Quite a nice contrasting pair of pieces. I don't know them at all, so I'll have to restrict myself to generalities. Re Baroque ornamentation, as the last time I took a Baroque piece to my teacher, I found out that half the ornaments worked a different way from how I thought they did :shock: (and I think wikipedia might have also been wrong), I'll keep very quiet.. except to say that there have been vast scholarly tomes on it and I'm not sure even they reach a consensus.

    I do prefer the Albeniz, which is a fun piece. In both you have nice variations in dynamic levels within the pieces. The Telemann sounds a little bit sub-Scarlatti-ish. As ever in your playing, good articulation. One thing bothered me, it's small but tiresome - where is that extraneous note(s) in the Telemann final chord coming from? That can't be right.

    Thank you, Andrew!
    But I'm confused regarding what you mean on the last chord in the Telemann. I did change it a little bit, but I only dropped the LH and octave and rolled the RH chord. I didn't think that was inappropriate. And I only did that on the repeat. I'm planning on re-recording the piece one of these days...I keep getting side-tracked...but maybe tomorrow. I hope you come back soon and tell me. :)

    By all means roll it. That's perfectly within the style. I was pretty sure there was a diminished 7th in the last chord. I put it into Audacity and slowed it down to check; it sounds like your thumb didn't hit the bottom A of the treble chord very cleanly and there's a G as well. I wouldn't worry about it too much, no-one else has commented on it.

    Ah....I've done that before. Sharp ears, Andrew! :) Thank you, I'll be careful on my next recording.

    Beautiful pieces, very enjoyable. More importantly, you seem to enjoy playing them as well which brings a feeling of freshness, openness. Your preference towards Albeniz is evident though.

    Thank you, Pantelis! I do like the Albeniz best, but I like the Gigue too.
    You just gave me an idea: I'm going to smile throughout the whole piece when I make my re-recording. I wonder if that can effect the sound--make it sound even more like I enjoy playing the music. Hmmmm.... :idea:
