Help to identify a song

This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv). Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed.

This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv). Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed. However, we can say in our posts "you can hear a model interpretation by such and such a guitarist on such and such a site".

This forum serves as a place of mutual help if we are stuck on a technical or musical difficulty, whether the problem stems from the notes, the rhythm, the dynamics, or the fingering. We can post several successive versions of the extract, as our work on it progresses. This will serve to help not only the member who is presenting his work, but also indirectly the dozens of other members who are having the same issues with the same passage, but who don't have the equipment or the technical knowledge to post a recording.

As a rule there should be just one topic per work. If several discussions arise on the same work, the moderators will merge the threads together.

Stephen when you say " arr. Llobet "
Miguel is the arranger or the composer ?

The piece is the first of the "Diez Canciones Populares Catalanas" pub UME on which it says Versiones para Guitarra Sola Por Miguel Llobet, so these are existing popular/folk songs arranged/harmonised etc by Llobet. So e.g. the choice of harmonies, the decision to restate your section in harmonics, etc was that of ML.

Another perspective - this is a different arrangement of the same folk song, sung by Victoria de los Angeles:

Yet another perspective: Mompou used the melody in his Cancion y Danza No 8 (for the Cancion, i.e. the song):

Search YouTube for "Aldo Ciccolini plays Federico Mompou Cancion y Danza no.8 (1956)"

The Danza is also based on a Catalan Folk Song that Llobet includes in his collection of arrangements for the classical guitar: La filadora.

(I always think it is interesting to hear other "perspectives" of a piece. Sometimes they can inform our own interpretation - sometimes not, but it is still useful, IMO.)
