Barrios Mangoré, Agustín - Andante Religioso - Video

Post by Daniele Lazzari » Fri Apr 22, 2016 11:29 pm

'Andante Religioso' is the second movement (I.Preludio Saudade, II. Andante Religioso, III. Allegro Solemne) of 'La Catedral', The Cathedral, a piece inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach's music. Indeed we can consider this piece a new-baroque work.
The Paraguayan Agustin Barrios is considered one of the best composers for classical guitar of early twentieth century. His style is versatile: new-classical, late-romantic, influenced by European classical music, but also greatly influenced by South American folk music.

Thanks for watching!

Hi Daniele,

I really liked your recording. Your tempo, dynamics and articulation all made for a very enjoyable performance. Thanks for sharing.

I do have a couple of questions if I may?

1. Which transcription are you using? I am very familiar with John William's version off his "The Great Paraguayan Guitar Music of Barrios" Album. I noticed that very occasionally some of your harmonies and bass runs were slightly different to the version I know. This in no way detracts from your excellent performance, but I'm just curious whether these changes are your own?

2. Is there a reason you choose to tune your guitar @432 Hz. This is not a criticism, but once again I'm just curious.

Thanks,
Paul

Thank you!
This is my own version. I just kept the continuity of the parts like in the baroque style.
I found this tuning by myself and then I discovered 'the stories' behind.. For those who don't listen the difference it is not a big change: the intonation is lower about 32/100, little more than 1/4 of tone.
Definitely it is for myself!
