Last Wednesday, I was recorded my transcriptions of two sonatas by Padre Antonio Soler professionally – the catalog numbers of the sonatas are R.1 and R.115.
My day started at 9 with an hour warm-up and slow practice. My recording session was set to start at noon; so, I made sure to program my early morning in order to allow an arrival time of 30 minutes prior to the session to warm up properly. Upon my arrival to the studio I met Luis Ivars, a Spanish film score composer, who was going to be running the session and whose welcoming character made the project run smoothly.
The session went very well and we were able to work through both sonatas in the three hours given. The process, in general, was very rewarding and exhausting at the same time. By the conclusion of the three hours, I felt as if I had run a marathon, my mind was very exhausted but it had a felling of accomplishment that I can still taste.
By the end of next week we will be receiving a CD with the final product; after all the practicing, playing, editing, and listening, I am looking forward to sharing it with all of you.
