I'm REALLY not sure why anyone would want this, but for those that have asked for it, I've added both an RSS Feed and an mRSS Feed for the "Best of a Bad Lot" entries.
Practice Session from 03-12-06

Agustín Barrios Mangoré:
La Catedral (Prelidio "Saudade")

OK - a second pass - I'm a little embarrassed to admit that this is after 10 days with it --- but I did take off 2 days in there - once for sore fingertips and once because I just didn't get around to playing that day :-)) Ok - enough excuses.

This is, at least, better than the first pass - a bit slow yet and some typical hav fumbles (memory AND fingers) but, for what it's worth, here's a second pass at this lovely piece.

The background, as I understand it, is that the Preludio to La Cat. was written some 20 odd years after the Andante and Allegro sections - and during a period in his life when he was very ill, out of money and feeling (by reports) pretty down -- thus "Saudade" I guess -- means "Homesickness" or "Nostalgia" depending on your translation. I can relate I guess and I WILL play this piece some day!!

Still, it is amAZing how well the Preludio leads into the Andante -- I swear I feel an almost physical compulsion to play on into the Andante following the last chord of the Preludio -- Barrios MUST have been on some different plane of reality or something - WOW - I just REALLY like this piece!!

BTW - I tried a lighter noise reduction this time to see if I could avoid the crappy highs - maybe better but there is some AC noise in the beginning that remains - sorry. But nothing else was done to the audio - no reverb etc. so this is about as clean as I can get it from the cedar top.
