Classical Guitar

Post  TinyMontgomery on Fri Jul 29, 2011 11:09 pm

More than many other instruments the guitar looks back on a classical tradition of its own. Few well-known composers wrote important works
for this instrument (Bach or Dowland composed some great music for the lute but that's about it) but there are many composers who are
known for their guitar compositions only (like Tárrega, Weiss [lute again] or Sor).

I'll start you off with the recording of a great tremolo composition, Campañas del Alba by Eduardo Sainz de la Maza, performed by the
great Alirio Diaz. Looking forward to your contributions and comments!

This one is for pinhedz (because I remember you once stated there was no such thing as "too old" for you)
Another great performer of lute music on the guitar playing what he correctly identifies as "a beautiful pavan, strangely neglected by performers".
If the title "A dream" is too cheesy for you the tune is also known as "Lady Leighton's Pavan".

What about Heitor Villa-Lobos? I like his work for guitar. I think it was Segovia who said it was very difficult to play. I also read he had jazzy things (I love my vast vocabulary and knowledge).

I have it played by Turibio Santos.

Just wanted to post this one.
I think it is well known, no? Maybe because it's easy to play? or because it is catchy in a nostalgic way?

Here it is played by Julian Bream. I have it played by Segovia. Segovia's recording has more of that "cassette sound" that I love hehehe.

Great performance of one of Weiss's great Passacaglias! Those Australians really know how to handle the 6-strung walking stick...

This is a stunning composition that was meant to be an homage to Manuel de Falla. Lots of Flamenco elements in there.
Joaquin Rodrigo composed "Invocación y Danza" for Alirio Díaz which is one of the reasons I chose to post his performance of the piece.
(the other is that it's simply brilliant).
