i have a need to post classical guitar playing once in a while... of course everyone's welcome to post too

i love this excerpt from ravel's "mother goose"... i first heard it played by parkening on one of his earlier albums... this is excellent playing too - from philip rosheger (a top composer, as well) - i particularly like the darkness of his tone.

i posted this a few years ago in the old forum. apparently, the piece was inspired by his having had just survived a heart attack. incidentally, i also almost had a heart attack when i first heard it. it's one of the best things ever.

/\ yes!


"The guitar is the instrument for the amorous dialogue with the woman we love. If the woman we love betrays us, then we take the cello, in order to open our heart to our friend. And if the friend is implicated in this infidelity of our love, then we choose the organ to communicate our sorrow with God".
-Andres Segovia

that composition alone, even in its unfinished state, is enough to justify the existence of the universe.

i've never heard "un sueno en la floresta" sound so beautiful...



it seems that i can search out moller's interpretation of any piece and it's almost guaranteed to become my favorite.

woohoo (-:

if you want your mind blown by contemporary classical guitar, experience these gems by johannes moller. he's unique in that he's not only one of the great living virtuosi, but also a brilliant composer.

a star in the sky, a universe within.

both pieces are amazing.

the bit from 1:46 to 1:56 in "evening dance" is so cool...

and that is simply the most beautiful version of the "passacaglia" i've ever heard.

i have to admit, even though bach is the great pillar, i love weiss every bit as much as him. de visee is up there, too.

agreed on that george, weiss is an underrated genius. i used to have the complete lute recordings by robert barto, great as they are its a shame so few of them have been arranged for the guitar, the lute comes across too bland and tonally restrictive to my ears. not very familiar with de visee any particular works u can recommend?
