Thank you, MP! I think that Brazillian music is among the most beautiful in the world. There are SO many different styles and genres as well. I'm sure there are many composers I've never heard of, but I'm glad I found this one! Thanks for the listen!

What a lovely thing to say, dear V_R! Thank you for the compliment!
There is a lot in what you say. The guitar is an especially intimate sounding instrument, with the quality of making the rest of the world seem to disappear.
On top of that, Kurt Vonnegut said that he felt that ALL artists- writers, painters, musicians, etc.- do what they do "with an audience of one in mind". I tend to agree.
In my case, I'm ALWAYS thinking about one special person whenever I play. Especially with this piece, because the object of my affection lives an ocean away. I feel that this is a kind of "song without words" in the way that the melody seems to describe all the yearning for the lover who is so far away, while still having the joy and comfort of being loved by such a wonderful person at least SOMEWHERE in the world.
So, you are very perceptive to have been able to hear that there was, indeed, an "only person" I was playing for!
It was her, but, maybe you just got in the way!
She DOES live in London, so that's the direction I was sending my energies!
Thank you again,
