‘Tis the season. Christmas music is upon us. I do like Christmas music but it can still get too much. After recording Silent Night last year, I thought I’d do something a little different this time, more seasonal than festive: Snowflight by Andrew York (the score is under copyright, so I can’t link to it here).
I haven’t recorded in a while and I think it shows in the quality of the recording. I also filed my nails too short this morning and you can hear that I’m not quite making contact with the string at the point that the nail and the flesh meet, particularly with the thumb. On the upside, although I did start too fast, I was more relaxed recording this than I’ve been before. I think the second half is actually better played than the first, which makes for a nice change.
