CGO’s next virtual orchestra piece.

Dear CGO members and potential members of CGO,
Our last Virtual CGO piece seems to have been well received on YouTube (67 views so far) and Facebook (92 people reached & 23 engagements).
Valerie is keen that we press on with another piece.
This time it is an arrangement of Greensleeves by Mark Cruz.
Mike Lloyd has kindly added the recordings for each part and the score to the members section of the website, under ‘audio’ and ‘scores’ respectively, and is under Anon as composer.
Let me know if you need to be reminded of the access details to the members section.
Valerie writes:
“Hi Everyone,
Here is our next project.
1) Practise with metronome, crotchet = 120. 2) Practise while listening to your part which I recorded while listening to the metronome. 3) When you record the video, make sure you tune to a tuner 1st. Leave a few seconds of dead air before you start playing and at the end.     [Michael adds “Could you give a single handclap at the very start of your video to aid in the synchronisation of audio and video, it really makes my job editing the video a lot easier, thanks.”] 4) I give you 2 bars of counting before starting. That should help with the start. 5) Dynamics written in the score on each part. No slowing down or breath marks. We’re keeping simple. Please have this to Michael by December 15th. Happy practising!
Parts ==== CGO Members: Guitar 1: Mat, Mike A, Antonio Guitar 2: Colin, Mike L, Valerie Guitar 3: Anne, Lily, Huw, David
Potential members/Friends of CGO (no pressure, only if you’re up for the challenge): Guitar 1: Aran Guitar 2: Caroline Guitar 3: Mike B, Adil
Thanks everyone! x”
Please let me know if you can’t find the time to take part, or would like to be removed from the mailing list. Michael Addlesee CGO Chairman

First Virtual CGO video updated.

I’ve had to fix a few audio/video sync issues with the video.
For some as yet unknown reason, when the DaVinci Resolve editing software loads .MP4 files the audio and video can get anywhere from +9 to -4 frames out of sync.
I’ve also tidied up the harmonics at the end of the piece.
Once I’ve got permission from everyone who took part the video will go Public on YouTube with URL: https://youtu.be/3zHR9JOyZlE
The high resolution version (4K DCI) of the video still available for download from Dropbox at:https://www.dropbox.com/s/nfwpne782e2dq7z/Virtual%20CGO%20plays%20La%20Valse%20Des%20Brumes%20by%20Thierry%20Tisserand.mov?dl=0

First cut of our first Virtual CGO video.

Here is my first cut of our first ‘Virtual’ CGO video.
I have put it on YouTube as ‘Unlisted’ which means only people who have this link, https://youtu.be/wemz1cRbBqQ , can see it. It won’t be found in any search results by the general public on YouTube.
However if Valerie thinks the quality is good enough, and no one has any objections, we could choose to make it ‘Public’ at a later date.
Michael
P.S.
There’s a high resolution version (4K DCI) of the video also available for download from Dropbox at:

Christopher Norton’s distinctive contributions to the repertoire successfully bridge the gap between traditional literature and music in contemporary popular styles. The pieces in /Connections for guitar book 1/ (and it’s companion /book 2/) cover a wide range of styles and present many of the same challenges found in more traditional repertoire – tonal beauty, balance between melody and accompaniment, natural movement and phrasing. More rhythmically oriented pieces require coordination, a deep-seated sense of pulse, and awareness of stylistic touches and accentuations. All pieces benefit from a strong connection to mood, movement, or image. Pieces from /book 2/ are listed in the Trinity College London classical guitar syllabus.
Also available now: /*Connections for guitar duo* <a1e0.engage.squarespace-mail.com/r?m=5fa7c3e8bc99a76142647ca0&u=https%3A%2F%2F80dayspublishing.com%2Fshop-connections%2Fconnections-for-guitar-duo%3Fss_source%3Dsscampaigns%26ss_campaign_id%3D5fa2e…>/ with downloadable play-along audio tracks at practice and performance tempo recorded by New Zealand guitarist John Couch.

/Tristorosa/, a title derived by combining the Portuguese words for “sad” and “rose”, was written by Heitor Villa-Lobos in 1910 when he was 23 years of age under the name of Epaminondas Villaba Filho. This pseudonym had also been previously used by his father, Raúl, a writer and amateur cellist. It is one of Heitor’s earliest compositions and the style of the waltz is typical of those of the period.

Conceived as trios and originally penned for basset horn, a kind of tenor clarinet with a darker mystical tone, Mozart’s five five-movement Divertimenti K. 439b fit very nicely on the warm, romantic sounding modern concert guitar. Classical guitar, capable of both melodic and contrapuntal distinctions, and itself a tenor among the string instruments, is a natural for these pieces.
A most welcome addition to the guitar duo repertoire.

CGO Update

Dear CGO Members & some potential new members,
Sunday 13th September was to be the day on which we recommenced rehearsals at Foxton Village Hall, but as I pointed out in my last group email (on 26/8/20) that plan had to be abandoned. This was of course due to Covid and the need of some of our members to shield. The recent increase in the number of cases is also not looking too promising.
So in that last email I mentioned some options of what we could do until rehearsals do restart. The feedback received was positive on the idea of recording a virtual orchestra piece. So we’re going to get into this, gently at first, with the Thierry Tisserand piece called “La valse des brumes”. It’s actually a trio but should be an easy introduction to doing virtual recordings. The plan is that Valerie will shortly be recording herself playing each of the parts and I will distribute these so that you can listen (with headphones) and play along yourselves while you make your own video recordings. Then I will attempt to stitch all the videos together.
If all goes well we can publish the edited video on the CGO YouTube Channel and then try something a bit more complicated.
Our Zoom sessions seem to have faded, but I will be present for an impromptu Zoom meeting at 3pm (N.B. We used to do 2pm but that seemed a bit too close to Sunday lunch time so hopefully 3pm is better) Sunday 13th for anyone who fancies a chat, and perhaps a guitar solo or two. I’ll keep it short, just 45 minutes is I think the free meeting time limit.

Article from Dr Ricardo Paz

The Music Educators Journal recently published a very original and unique article of major significance in the guitar education field titled “/Guitar Study in the United States/”. I wrote it with the clear purpose of providing deep and scholastic information for guitar researchers and the guitar community in general. I would love you could post the article on the Cambridge Guitar Orchestra website.
Sincerely yours,

CGO: Update from Valerie

Dear CGO members,
I hope everyone is keeping well and giving their guitar some regular exercise.
Valerie wrote with an update (Note to Mike Lloyd – Could you add the attached score & parts .PDF to the Website please). She says:
“I hope you are all staying safe. I miss seeing you at rehearsals. Apologies for not being at our recent Zoom meetings. I spend my life online (as I imagine, many of you are doing too) so on weekends I unplug. I will join in at some point for a meeting, no worries.
In the meantime, I’m hoping I can encourage you to pick up your guitar and get ready for when we will meet in person. Perhaps knowing our plan for the Manchester concert would help? Our 2 concerts are not canceled, only rescheduled. It’s up to you how you want to learn the pieces. Perhaps learn 2 pieces the 1st month and add 1 each month? Every time you add a piece, play through the parts you learned the months before so you don’t lose out on your work. There’s good news! You already know many of the pieces and have practised them numerous times pre-Covid. So, that rep should be all about dusting it off and working on upping the tempi.
LA VALSE DES BRUMES by Thierrry Tisserand. He contacted me after he found out I was posting his music on YouTube. He dedicated this piece to me which is sweet. We could learn the 1st one and it would be a lovely way to start the programme. It’s not hard and we could get it under our fingers quickly. I think we’ll need to do that in order to be properly prepared for our concerts. Manchester: I’m performing a 25 min solo programme so that will take the pressure off of CGO. For the Moolight Mandolin, we are sharing a concert so again, that takes loads of pressure. We are not doing a full concert next year which will be great easing back into the performance seat.
BRUMES: Guitar 1: Mat, Tom, Mike A, Antonio Guitar 2: Colin, Mike L, Hannah, Hans Guitar 3: Anne, Lily, Huw, David
Programme: Start after my solo, we’ll do a short set before interval 1) La Valse de Brumes 2) Concertino III (all 3 mvts) 3) Tico Tico Interval
1) Dulcinea 2) Two Themes 3) Touch her Lips 4) Villanesca 5) Wilde Mountain Thyme 6) Fairy Pools 7) L’elephant
Encore: Cantilena
We need to time this, to be fair. We may have too much in the 1st half. Might have to move Tico to 2nd half and end with that. We’ll know more closer to the date but I think that’s enough music. To do the 2nd Granados and the Schubert we will need more people.
Please stay safe and drop us a note (🎶), we would love to hear how you are all managing during the lockdown. I’ve been teaching, recording solo videos, doing the Brouwer Etude challenge, the Tisserand challenge (my student challenged me to learn his music during lockdown), collaborated w/a virtual guitar orchestra and with an artist who’s doing a lecture at the Guitar Foundation of America. Plus, we take advantage of nice weather with rambling in the middle of nowhere w/hubby (who is shielding me & teaching online) with our 15 & 1/2 yr old pup Jodie. Next up, notating on Finale 2 of my compositions and writing more music. Looking forward to hearing from you all. Lots of hugs,
Valérie”
