I saw in the comments below the youtube, a comment by a musician who CONDUCTED the 3rd, he said it was awesome too, so its no just us thinking it!
Very, very nice indeed!
Originally posted by mikelomYou figure these boys are overstepping themselves, just folk musicians trying to be serious? The total sound was very spirited sounding to me. Did you try listening to it with eyes closed so you don't see each instrument?
Did it cross anybody's mind that this is how it was played originally?
I don't see awesomeness, but lots of players playing a role. No real virtuosity!
Sorry to put a downer, with my opinion, but this is how it was played in Europe as it originally was. Nothing special here.
It was being played so in Europe, as the potatoes and Irish and Italians we Z9qWpa2rIg
I appreciate the transpose to guitars, but nothing special happening.
