Alea iacta est

So, I decided which will be my next piece to learn.

It’s a piece of Yann Tiersen which name is Amelie Poulain – Comtine d’un autre ete l’apr. Unfortunately I don’t speek French, so I don’t know what the title means. Please let me know, if you speak French 🙂

Here the reference:

I started learning this beautiful piece, which should be well-known by a lot of people (do you know the movie? 🙂 ), about 1 week ago. Actually it was a week earlier, but then I was one week on vacation, so it doesn’t count 😉

This piece is very repetative and it’s soooo different to River Flows in You. There are 4 different measures for the left hand which repeat all over the entire piece. Secondly the 2nd half is almost identical to the 1st half, but one octave higher. So, actually someone has to learn less than a half 🙂 But Although this piece seems that easy it sounds sooo nice 🙂

So, let’s see how long does it take …

Ah, forgot to mention … reading from the sheet is still difficult …


New Recording of River Flows in You

After a learning time of 7 weeks now a complete version. But still lot’s of mistakes … I’ll continue playing this piece and perhaps record a new version in a couple of weeks. Will be interesting, how it will sound then …
