Barrios Mangoré, Agustín - Allegro Solemne - Video NEW version

Post by Daniele Lazzari » Sun May 15, 2016 2:35 pm

"Allegro solemne" is the third movement 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 piece consist of: I. Preludio saudade, II. Andante religioso, III. Allegro solemne.
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.
This video was recorded today. Thanks for watching!

Hi Daniele

Thanks for posting that. That's a tough movement to get through and I applaud your skill. You are certainly a far better guitarist than me!

After listening to it I must admit I wonder how much I might have enjoyed it more if the dynamic and colour contrasts were to be brought out a little more. Just a suggestion for the next time you record it.

All the best
Peter

Thank you for the comment!
Some years ago I have recorded the piece on my solo CD. At that time I played the Allegro Solemne more slower and on that recording you can find all you mentioned: dynamic, contrasts, colours and so.
This time I wanted try something different. I can play more faster too, like Barrios himself in his old recording. When we play fast it is very difficult find the just measure for dynamics, colours. And this finally touches the style itself. This obviously is not a romantic piece of music, instead I think this is neo-baroque music: chords, lines, rythm are more important than colours, big dynamics etc.
I can't say I found the truth, I still am searching for..
