Very lovely music.

Nicely done. I like the interpretation you gave it with some of the staccato notes. I’m impressed with your intonation – I’ve never played strings (except the guitar a long time ago), but I gather gut strings are more prone to stretching and going out of tune than modern ones. Since this is a dance tune, which would have needed a steady beat, I would have liked to see the tempo a little more consistent at the start of section 5, but that’s a very minor quibble. Just for my own curiosity I’d have liked the documentation to talk a little more about the technique for playing vielle and how it differs from the violin, but again, that’s not a big complaint. Overall it was a beautiful performance.
Thank you for the detailed feedback!
I would love to dance to this.
Thoroughly enjoyed this and very impressed with your musical talent. Thank you!
