    Carnival of Venice

    Jorge,

    Well done! Great sound! Sounds like a Besson...oh...wait...! :-) (had to plug there...lol)

    But in all seriousness, you handled the technical difficulties of the piece very well, nice and controlled throughout, and solid stage presence! Big low register, barks very well. I must admit, I was waiting to hear that high Eb concert at the end though... But very nice all-around!

    It was nice to hear the Carnival of Venice not attempted to be played at warp-speed for once...it's actually quite nice on the ears to hear it at this tempo! Most people these days think faster is better... in some cases, yes, but I enjoyed the tempi in your performance.

    Well done, Jorge!

    I thought that was a fine performance Jorge! I also liked your tempo; you kept the piece sounding "light and breezy" as it ought to be. I thought the ensemble was very good too.
