Yesterday I practiced and recorded the 1st movement of Sonatina Quarta by Krebs:
I played it on two flutes of 8’ and 2’ level using Velesovo sample set by Sonus Paradisi of Hauptwerk VPO. The most difficult thing for me was to play precisely the passage in the second half of the piece where the right hand part imitates violin arpeggios and has leaps that span over an octave. After four unsuccessful attempts I was able to do it right. Listening to the playback of those two flutes was very inspiring to me.
Aušra and I also practiced four times Sinfonia from Bach’s Easter Oratorio. We recorded everything just in case some takes would be good enough to show in the public. When we listened to the audio during our lunch we decided that the last attempt was the best but it still contained just too few errors to share. For me the most challenging thing was playing all those 16th notes on the pedals correctly. Although I have to say that Viscount MIDI pedalboard is very very comfortable. Even though today will be very busy with preparations for Easter, I hope we will practice and record it today and share it in time for tomorrow.
