Hi guys,

It looks like maestro Barrios is one of our favourite composers here in the forum … :D
I have recorded this valse on quite bad guitar which I borrowed from my friend ( I hope he won't read this post :wink: )- so....sorry for very poor basses. I missed them especially in the middle- arpeggio section.
I was very inspired by Artur Rubinstein playing Chopin's valses while working on that piece. Well, I am not sure whether I played it the way I wanted it :? . I will have to listen to it after e few days.

In meantime I hope to get some comments from you :D . Any criticque is very welcome !!!!

If this guitar is "quite bad", then all the more credit to you. It sounds wonderful to me, and your complaint about the bass doesn't bother me a bit. You play with remarkable dynamics. My only possible critique might be that it starts very slow, and slows again to a sleepy tempo about a minute before the end. I would prefer it just a small bit faster there.

Lovely work.

Near unbelieveable -- except we have heard you play before and once again you have excelled. This is professional recording quality for sure. You move in and out on this one is such a sure and confident way that Maestro Barrios had to be pleased and honored. Man, I would love to be able to phrase half as well.

Mark this is just great!
It just flow! Beautiful phrasing! Thank you for some beautiful moments!

Very impressive :applauso: :applauso:

It flows like water right to the end. Your tone is very good and I love the dynamics and accents you add to the piece (for example the `scale run' at the start of the piece (0'25) where you do a cresc. up to the highest note which works excellent!). Barrios is not (at all) my favourite composer but it is joy to hear your recording!

If this was a bad guitar I am curios what the recording would be like on a concert guitar :D
