What could possibly go wrong? :lol:

Sorry, I don't know.

Could you give us some examples? B)

Very nicely done! I look forward to the D minor Chaconne ;)

Remember Juliette Daum? She hasn't posted here in several years, but here's her Bach D minor Chaconne on English Concertina.

 

Again, unfortunately not in Germany (possibly Europe in general) - pity as I'd love to hear that one...

 

Best wishes - Wolf

Strange. I also get "not available", though all her other YouTube videos that I tried played with no problem. And as far as I know, she's still living in England, not America, so I think it's odd if America can view it but Europe can't.

 

But the Chaconne is on her 2011 "CD" (apparently downloadable only; priced at $12.99, or maybe £10) at CD Baby. The single piece is downloadable for $1.99, and you can listen to a brief excerpt on her CD Baby page, which is here.

Thank you Jim, and I found it on Amazon too now - will try the bits and then probably download either the Chaconne or the entire package... (albeit I'd rather like to have the "physical" CD).

...just found it on spotify too - can't wait for today's office time ending and giving it a listen...

 

(and thanks to Sebastian who told me I couldn't afford to avoid the expense)

You could burn one for "backup", no? :unsure:

So you're "unsure" about that, Jim? :o

 

:unsure: as to what this is telling about myself...

 

However - a backup CD doesn't do it for me, :unsure: why...

 

Positively best wishes - Wolf ​

That's out of question, and I'm absolutely enjoying her CD!

 

However IMO the Chaconne recording, while really sweet, isn't entirely successful (maybe couldn't have been so) as the harmonic complement (which may very well be entirely in the dots) is sort of overpowering when not played in bowed arpeggio style, and OTOH the melody at the very top of those rapidly broken chords isn't coming through either.

 

I reckon this is not Juliette's fault but just due to limitations of our beloved little instrument as it is providing absolutely no decay or after-release-tone..., leaving you the choice of spreading the harmony to a much greater extent at full volume (which maybe was the right way to go here) or rather missing it by just shortly touching the keys...

 

The Cello suites might be better-suited to the concertina in general as the use of notes sounding simultaneously is more restricted here AFAIR (let alone the flute suites where this is of course no issue at all and the beauty of single-line harmony can be explored just like that with any given instrument).

 

However, lovely music it is anyway...

 

Best wishes - Wolf

 

 

P.S.: I once tried the prelude of the first cello suite which I dearly love with the EC (using a transcription for the violin) but soon quit it because I was missing the subtile consonance of the strings...
