This is the first half of Bach's Trio in C-Moll BWV 585 arranged from the first two movements of a trio sonata by Johann Friedrich Fasch.
This is my debut live recording. I'm a very nervous performer, which this performance amply demonstrates. I'd like people to believe that I can actually play this piece well, though this hesitating, mistake-filled performance doesn't evidence that in any way. Unfortunately, I tend to make hundreds of mistakes whilst under pressure, but to help me get over my fear of public performance, I'm posting this here for you all to hear (and ridicule :-) ).
I promise not to be offended at anyone who says my performance isn't up to standard - it isn't! I am however determined to learn how to translate the reasonably fluent performance I can give to myself through headphones into a public performance / recording, so any comments in that area would be particularly appreciated. I'm a bit of a self-conscious perfectionist - if I know someone's listening, I get terribly frustrated about mistakes, which of course breaks my concentration and introduces more mistakes! Still - enjoy it, if you can ;-)
I may release the second half of this piece (Allegro) after a little more practice.
