This is another post I wrote a year ago. But somehow I never put it in the list of things to listen to, so it disappeared after a couple weeks. While looking through it I decided to listen to more. Perhaps later I’ll split this up into composers
Repeated notes are horribly difficult on piano, and I thin they may be even worse on guitar. I like the way this man makes a musical statement with the repeats, so it is extremely expressive rather than just technical.
Capricho árabe (Arabic Caprice) is an 1892 work for classical guitar He dedicated it to a friend, conductor Tomas Breton.
This just seems like a lot of fun to me, with the sound effects.
Again, the way this man interprets repeated notes is very special. It makes this difficult technique sound effortless.
This is a piece for guitar, also known as “Estudio en Mi de Rubira” (Study in E by Rubira), “Spanish Romance”, “Romance de España”, “Romance de Amor”, “Romance of the Guitar”, “Romanza” and “Romance d’Amour” among other names. No one knows who wrote it. It seems also to be famous because of a French film.
I don’t even know what this is about. The story sounds complicated.
It’s just a tango, but for me this was huge amount of fun full of things that only a guitar can do.
