I never managed to record my A-Lute properly and so I also wanted to use the opportunity t record it.
It took 4 attempts to get a record of some pieces which are not overmodulated. The lute must be terribly loud xD
Having played my complete program 3 times I reduced the program which actually made it on the proper recording.
Afterwards I played some music I haven't played for nearly two years.
and a dance.
And - for the first time recorded I also improvised a bit. It was just fun to listen to the instrument sounding hopefully close to like it really sounds.
oh: you cannot know: It's somewhat a running gag that I am finishing rehearsals with improvisations either spoofing songs by Sting or imitating the compositional style of a friend who composes new music for the lute.
This small instrument looks like this
Want to hear some more?
A piece I also haven't played for a very long time. It's a new composition by the american composer Allan Alexander.
