Hi to everyone! I'd like to share with you my interpretation of this masterpiece created by the virtuoso pianist Lola Astanova. smile

It's a theme and variations based on the famous Christmas Carol "Jingle Bells" and in my opinion it's very well-done piece.

Well, here you have and... Merry Christmas!! wink

Even though you don't show as much skin as Lola, I like your version A LOT better than hers! Your interpretaion is grounded in FUN. Did you work that out by ear? crazy

My only suggestion would be to sew some jingle bells to a couple of elastic wrist bands, slip 'em onto your wrists when you play this, and go to town.

Please pardon my provincial American ignorance, but do they have jingle bells in Spain?

Thanks for sharing this, FranKiisko! I really enjoyed it! thumb

P.S. You really need to get started on Kapustin!!! I'm totally serious about that! cool

What this performance needs to make it really authentic, is for you to try and look as though you are supping water dripping from an invisible stalagtite just above your face.

Great playing though smile

@Cinnamonbear, Thank you very much!! laugh No, I didn't work it by ear (that would have been a whole feat lol!) I bought the music score and I studied it a lot :P

Thank you for your advice and yes, we have Jingle Bells in Spain (and it's very famous!) but lots of times it's sung in spanish.

Kapustin? I've really enjoyed some works from him but I never thought about studing his works. Which one would you recommend me? smile

@debrucey, thank you very much!! laugh

LOL! I mean actual metal jingle bells, of the instrument variety, that jingle when you shake them! Ha-ha! But, I guess if the song is famous, the bells must be present somewhere!

Here's the Kapustin I would recommend:



If you can do Lola's jingle bells this well, you can totally work up this one, too! Go for it! thumb laugh
