Beautiful sound of the guitar and well played too. Thanks for sharing

Not sure about posting lesser known pieces in this topic. Why not just use the relevant sub forums for that?

Bert, I guess you mean the recordings subforums? These are for recordings of members playing, so they would not be appropriate. The Café is for non-CG discussions, so probably not appropriate either. Usually such videos would be best in "Our favourite Websites". The Mods will discuss it.

Thank you Bert! there is more of this coming! :D Surprisingly Carlos Seixas is not well known, even if his compositions can absolutly compete with other barock composers. What most people don't know is that also Scarlatty lived in Lisbon for many years and a lot of his compositions were probabely written here. It must be full of counterpoint around here :D

So here we go again. This is a transcription of an other piece of the same composer, Carlos Seixas. Originally for Harpiscord. I find that the Harpiscord music sounds much better on the guitar! The transcription is her own, - Rebeca Oliveira. I met her last year on a competition where I was a sponsor for one of the prizes. Very nice work and playing! Use decent headphones please..

So once again Carlos Seixas by a very young and gifted portugues player:
Sonata nº 67 em Lá menor Concert at the Kunst Uni Graz, June 2016. André Ferreira, from Portugal, is a student of Margarita Garcia Escarpa in Vigo. He plays a guitar made by René Baarslag (Spain). The arrangement of these beautiful sonata is made by him, originally for harpsichord.

Ok, as nobody does reply.... :mrgreen: :D This composition is from the portuguese composer Evandro Meneses who is the owner of this channel so there is no copyright infringment. He is a student at ESMAE in Lisbon, classical guitar and composition. It is surprising that so young musicians make such consistent compositions - and indeed classical guitar is here to stay, and I guess next step will be to conquist new public!This is one of my instruments, 2016 red cedar wood lattice. I like it a lot.

All of the performances were very nice. My favorite (if I had to pick one)? Probably the first one . . . but only if I absolutely had to pick one.
Whenever I am not ready for my music lesson, I call it 'facing the music'.

Hi, I am glad you like it! Thank you for replying. Do you still play the Humphrey/ Martin? My very first build was once a copy of a Humphrey, with the transversal lattice, but with cedar top. I was always fascinated about them from the Assad recordings. Even if I find for the player the sound is a bit crispy and dry, but surprisingly I don't have the same impression when I am on the listener side and they do record very well!

Yes, I still play it. As a matter of fact, I and another guitar player recently played at a charity golf event, and I played my M/H guitar there. Some other guitar folks I know, who play far better than I, have told me that it is definitely a 'keeper'. :D
