Hi Everyone,

Here is my presentation of the 'Soler - Sonata No. 84 in D Major.'
I take some interpretive freedom with the placement of trills in a couple of places.

Soler - Sonata No. 84 in D Major (3:19)

Also, a youtube link to the same performance with the score pages in the video.

I listened to this earlier and meant to reply, but forgot. A nice and bouncy performance of this deservedly popular sonata. It could well have been one of Scarlatti's. I will put it on the site tonight.

Ditto to Chris' comment. I listened to this a week ago and meant to comment but forgot. I thought his word 'bouncy' was right on target. I've always liked Soler and don't hear enough of it.

Hi Chris, Hi Stu,

What fun using the word bouncy. I really like that.

Much appreciation!

Kaila

Yes, it's a nice word isn't it :D
This one is now on the site. It sounds a lot bouncier than the version we already had.

You wrote you took some liberties with the trills. Were you influenced by Alicia de Larrocha ? Incidentally someone on YouTube (bartje11) just posted some Soler sonatas (including this one) by her. Now that is bouncy playing ! AdL is really sorely missed.

Chris,

Actually, I was not influenced by her, but it's an interesting point.

I just listened to it and feel positively bouncy, you project the feeling very well and in particular demonstrate remarkable control in the pp section. Great playing!

Hi Kaila,

Absolutely stunning. Bouncy is a great word for this. It also feels very buoyant, and I think that your performance was absolutely bodacious. I see from the copy on IMSLP that there are not as many ornaments written in as you used. I think that your ornaments were perfect for this work and they were all very stylishly played. I notice moments where I think of Scarlatti, but then I hear it more organized into what would become the classical sonata movement form.

Oy vey. now I'm hooked on Soler and want to start exploring his music.

Scott

Scott,

Thank you for listening, your thoughtful comments, and bringing
a new adjective to my vocabulary - bodacious ( :D ). I plan to
use it every chance I get.

Much appreciated.

-Kaila
