D’Anglebert Allemande

Time to start posting some real content! I’ve been wanting for a while to start really using this web page, and also to try recording and performing more music. So the logical thing to do is to start regularly posting sound files! I don’t pretend that these are professional recordings by any stretch – they certainly won’t be professionally recorded! And my living room is far from an ideal acoustic. Any suggestions about microphone placement are welcome. (and yes, the clock is loud – you can hear it clicking away in the background)

I’m also thinking of all these recordings as ‘Works in Progress’. Just because I’ve recorded it doesn’t mean I feel it’s perfect, or even that it’s necessarily ready to perform. Sometimes I might post something just to spark discussion or to illustrate a point, or just because I think it’s neat!

So feel free to comment and to criticize,

To start with, here’s the Allemande from D’Anglebert’s suite in D-. It’s not note-perfect, and I’d really like to do a little more to vary the repeats, but the recording process has been really helpful in learning the piece.
