Kjetil, did you find the score to that piece on the composer's website? All I can find are mp3s; it sounds a lot like Tomas Marco or Jose Luis Turina, but with a bit less bite - like Brotons.Kjetil Heggelund wrote:I have wanted to play Xavier Pages piece "Tridacna" that I found for free on his homepage. Other than that I suggest you search sheerpluck.de with those criteria. Great place to learn about new stuff. They often list publishers as well.
Codex 1 is quite a thorny piece. Fabula is a bit less so, or at least less pointillistic. Gabriel Estarellas has a great recording of Fabula. Amazon has some samples from it.Sean Eric Howard wrote:I'm not much for playing transcriptions, though. Shoot, Cristobal Halffter's Codex I, which is written for guitar, is one of the hallmarks of guitar literature, but rarely played. I'm not familiar at all with Luis de Pablo's Fabula; thanks!
I agree 100%!Praeludium wrote:
Thanks a lot. The contemporary repertoire for guitar is surprisingly huge. We're living in a golden age for the guitar.
I know Octavio and have his Prelude and Fugue. While I like the piece's dark character it is by no means 'Spanish' sounding. I think it has more in common with Koshkin than with Torroba.Sean Eric Howard wrote:I'm trying to purchase the score to Octavio Vazquez's Prelude and Fugue; it seems to be much more difficult to find contemporary pieces.
