Well done, Stephen. Nice, for a change, to hear you play 5c instead of six singles; and a Batov to boot!
I recorded some pieces from this manuscript, in amongst this small collection:
Thanks Stuart, and you are right, they are quite complicated and demanding. I took to them because I bought the Batov to play in a Playford repertoire trio, and then promtly found Monica's edition of these!
I did also appreciate your videos of some of them. The set I recorded gets a performance tomorrow - I wonder how often that happens?
Hello Stephen. I really enjoyed all your performances of these Playford pieces. I find them sometimes surprisingly difficult (as they are just little country dances tunes) - especially this one (especially bars 15 and 17). Princess Anne must have been a good player and she must have had a very well set-up guitar. (I suppose she could afford it!) To me it's very interesting how these Playford tunes are set for the five-course guitar... very different from just taking a plucked instrument and picking out the tunes as published by Playford.. but instead weaving (and sometimes losing) the melody line and incorporating campanella and chord brushing
