OMG that was so beautiful! :D Loved your phrasing on this, perfect tempo. The guitar sounds beautiful, clear as a bell yet very warm and lyrical, nice sustain too, enjoy it for years to come. Will you be recording more movements from this Suite? It's a lovely piece.

Thanks for sharing,

Aryeh

WOW! :shock:
Great sounding guitar, great performance. You captured the essence of the music. :bravo:

I hope this is just the first of many more recordings Sean.

Beautiful, Sean. Lovely played and magnificent sound. Do you also play the 5th part of the suite? :lol: :bravo:

:lol: It's great for the memory work - 2 pieces for the price of 1!

I really appreciate all the kind words! I'm having to grow my nails out a bit because the Reynoso's tonal palette is so much bigger than what I'm used to. It'll take me a bit of time to grow into the guitar (and I plan to enjoy every moment!).

Wonderful performance Sean. :bravo:
I particularly liked your very natural-sounding rubato. :casque:
My only comment is that when I learnt this piece, I played it quite a lot slower, but I still think it sounds great at your tempo. :merci:

Hello Sean,
What strikes me most is your guitar's perfect pitch, even in the high positions and clear, bell-like ring. It must be a lovely instrument.
Apart from these your nice, tender touch on those (carbon?) strings is also something to note.
Thanks for the beautiful music.

Hi,

Sorry for the long delay - haven't been around Delcamp much lately. I thank you very much for the kind words toward my instrument. I only use nylon strings, actually. Richard Reynoso's instruments have a special melancholy spirit that strikes my fancy.
