Should bear out what everyone has been saying about great lift being possible with minimal ornamentation. The next one to come, a reel (give me a few days) is even more of a treat.
Edited to add this unauthorized quote from an email from Peter (forgive the liberty Peter) which I thought would add context to his commentary on the page.
I would appreciate comments on the commentary, I don't think I managed to get across what I wanted to get across i.e. that this sort of performance may look very plain on paper but is in fact a lovely subtle piece of music. It's the same thing you get when listening to some of Micho Russell's of Tommy Reck's music, you hear it and think it's wonderful but when you try to analyse it and write it down you find it looks like a pedestrian uninteresting performance and you realise all the magic is in between the notes, in the bounce, in these indescribable things, the personality of the player or whatever. It's magic but how to convey it to the reader I don't know. Whatever it is, it is really the stuff you can only learn by osmosis, by endless listening and absorbing whatever you can grasp.
