Dmitri and the Heavy Fridge. A duet for 2 bass guitars or 2 tenor- or normal - guitars Grades: Graded Sight Reading Duets from Grade: 1 to 4 There is a score, which is probably easier to play from since each player can follow the other. Included are separate parts where each player has to rely more on an accurate sense of pulse and an understanding of the other player's interpretation. The pieces are not so much about sight-reading as to develop the ability to play in ensemble; to listen and keep in time, follow dynamics and expression.
I'd like very much any thoughts you have on these since I have not come across any similar exercise elsewhere. Cannaris - from the original for keyboard. Sonata Grades: 7,3. Grade: 2.

Little Piece Opus 68, No. Grades: 8.
Carnival - a violin and guitar recital
Sonata No. Grades: 8,8. He plays too straight, without feeling, or he just tries to get all flashy instead. He's very accurate, fast, but it's just notes. His playing sounds like I'm sitting in front of a computer rather than listening to a violinist. Take a look at this video of a modern player performing La Campanella. How would you play it differently to make it more authentic? Each note should have a particular quality to it, and not just be played "as is"- that is the essence of opera and the like, which Paganini's music is based on.
PS: Casey's recording has the right idea about tone colours and such, and though I would not say the Paganini posture is itself a requirement to play the piece appropriately, it does help with Paganini quite a bit. Try it out! I never heard his recordings until after I heard him live, and I thought he was a more compelling live performer. They are some of my all time favourite musical pieces. They do not get performed as often as they should. Although Scott, I think you mean Elicit? One can be hyper-critical and say that maybe this or that one plays more perfectly here and there.
But Markov for me really does capture that swahbuckling style and excitement that that does Pag and his caprices proud. Certainly reminiscent of interpretive styles found on recordings by Kreisler, Joachim and Auer. Of these, only Joachim was alive at the time of Paganini and was but a young boy when Paganini died.
I think what we are hearing from these old artists is more the playing fashion and pedagogy of that era.
They did not seem to be afraid to add some "rough" sounds to the music. But one has to be careful about making inferences about playing style from old recordings, like the Laszlo link.
The technology of both recording and playback introduced a variety of distortions that could easily be mistaken as deliberate dynamics. For example, I have a library of records from the age of the Victrola. A recording of John Philip Sousa's band playing the Stars and Stripes Forever has an overall variation in "color" that is reminiscent of the Laszlo Moses recording. Markov is an exception, but even he seems to lack some tonal contrast much of the time though, that could be the matter of synthetic vs gut , but I think that is not completely the case.
In the first place, as Scott said, we no longer react to music on such a level. He cited Rite of Spring.
Science and the comforts of everyday living has more or less killed this as an issue in the average persons mind. Religion is just not popular like it used to be in Western countries. One of the last players to effect people in this way was the young Menuhin who was believed at the time to be a god in some of the places he played. I think if Paginini heard todays violinsts playing his music he would be blown away by how brilliantly and expressively it is played.
I seriously doubt he had a superior tone color range and expressiveness than the great players of the 20c.
It then becomes pretty much a question of personal preference IE whose version moves you the most. For me , the stone cold perfection of the 19 year old Heifetz Moto Perpetuo is eerily moving. I worry about my soul. Accardo sometimes, but not always, forgets about technique and plays something so beautiful it melts my hearts.
The recording Venegerov made at 21 of the first concerto attained a level that I doubt if Paginini could actually aspire to. The awesome brilliance of Kogan or whatever. The wild craziness of Gitlis gets right to the heart of the music. Personally I am really grateful for the new interpretations by Ilya Gringolts.
They are not sentimental, schamltzy or bound by any kind of mainstream convention. Even at my age hearing these was hearing a new kind of Paginini that made my heart stop and my jaw drop that such things were possible. For reference, here is a list of the contents of the set:. My suggestion is to search the catalogs of the big national libraries - the British Library, the Library of Congress, La Bibliotheque Nationale of France, the Vatican Library, for instance.
