Do we want all professional classical guitarists to have conformed to the study of a set list of works? Do we want them all to have the same repertoire?Philcan wrote:...I would like you to complete the list of important repertoire, which every professional classical guitarist should be able to play, or everyone who wants to be a professional should learn...
I think every serious guitarist professional or otherwise should have a similar list. Every consevatory trained player should have come across many of those pieces in his studies. Professional guitarists need to differentiate themselves and they also need to play things which agree with their personalities. However every guitarist should be aspire to play certain things like Recuerdos, Leyenda and Villa-Lobos as these are central to the guitar. I am sure pretty much every classical pianist can dash off the Moonlight sonata. However, these should be personal goals. If you play for people, it is good to have a selection of stuff which they will enjoy. The great thing about the guitar is that even relatively simple pieces can sound really wonderful when imaginatively played.Philcan wrote:Hello,
