Really nice sounding piece and great playing. Pity that the mp3 is heavily compressed (understandibly though due to its length) I'm looking for something new and challenging to play and this sounds like a good choice.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Btw, I've found a few transcriptions for this piece and in all of them the first note in bar 3 is a quarter note preceeded by what looks like an eighth grace note. The versions I have listened to, incuding your own, play these two notes not as a grace note before the main note but simply as two eighth notes. Why is it notated like this?

Later...

Owl informed me that her transcription does not have it notated the way I had described. Does anyone else know why it is so notated in other transcriptions?

This is what I was talking about (if anyone's interested :| )
It seems that this kind of grace note just represents half of the length of the main note it precedes, in this case an eighth note. But the question remains - why notate it as a grace note at all, instead of simply two quavers? If I can't find an answer to this I'm sure to fall to pieces...

As always a wonderful interpretation filled with all the good things of our craft. I have come to expect no less from your posts. A true delight. Thanks.

This type of ornament is called an appogiatura and it is noted as a grace note to show that the first note recieves more stress that the on that follows. It's a tension and resolve issue. The grace note is the note of stress which then leans (or resolves) into the chord tone (the note of resolution)

Oh forgot to mention that the grace note happens on the beat.

Just listening to this now for the first time, I realized it is one of ~100 CG songs I have on my Ipod shuffle that is one of my favorites also by done by Segovia. Sonata in A (L483). It was a pleasure listening to it and I am sure it must be joy to play. Well done.
