As much of Parodi's as I can manage

Learning by ear his arrangements of Granada, Claire de Lune, Rumores de la Caleta and his Poema

Also learning Vals Lunatico from his daughters performance of it. It's really a formidable test of timing. If anyone happened to get the sheet music from redge and happens to be reading this a pm would be much appreciated. I won't get my hopes up though, as much would surely be a small miracle, hehe.

DeVisee Suite in Dminor
Ginastera Sonata
Sor Gran Solo

The sor is a revisit and big push to improve stability at tempo, the devisee is about to get its first run out as a performance piece and I’ve got the first 2movements of the ginastera there or there abouts.

An arrangement of Oye Coma Va is out there? Cool - must check it out. I assume we haven't got Santana's authorisation to post recordings of it (for when you've finished it and post your recording ;-) ).

Or would we ask Torrisi for permission since it's his arrangement?
It might be a while before I've mastered this enough to record. :)

Meanwhile, here's Torrisi playing his own arrangement...

I've memorized Danza Española #5 (Granados) today.
The next piece I will memorize is Estudio Brillante (Tarrega) that I want to use for warm-up purposes.

Actually, I replied to your post quite quickly and was wondering afterward who wrote Oye Coma Va. I thought you were going to say we'd need a different author's permission. But yes, I missed the 'arrangement' part of your post. But I've always wondered if and how arrangers get permission from the original authors of a piece. The answer's probably in one of the delcamp FAQs.
But the arrangers must need to get permission too, musn't they?

Yes and assuming they did, then my guess is we'd need the arrangers permission.

Same here. Great piece of music! Which version and how far along are you? I've got it (violin version transcribed to A minor) memorized and can play through it but not up to the tempo I'd like (@ about 0.75), botching it up here and there. I play it everyday, improving slowly.
