Following on from David Norton's video of three Ponce preludes to celebrate recordings of Ponce's music now being able to be shared here, I offer his beautiful Tropico, which I used to demonstrate gut strings by Damian Dlugolecki at 440 pitch. It's a beautiful piece of guitar music, and not too hard to play. The challenge is getting the pace right, and sustaining it throughout.
Beautiful piece and lovingly played, Rob. I had heard of Manuel Ponce but had not listened to any of his compositions until David posted three of his Preludes yesterday and you followed suit with this Tropico. Parts of it reminds me of Erik Satie's Gymnopédies...
