There is something that I really love about the harpsichord; namely transcriptions for guitar. Both instruments are plucked, but the guitar being plucked by the fingers gives the music a certain "touch" of expression that I miss with the harpsichord.
I just heard Rebecca Oliveira play her transcription of Seixas' sonata #37 and was again taken in by her mystical performance. I was going to post that but in looking over the thread see that you posted this sonata in your very first message. That video has been removed since I came in and I overlooked it.
Instead, here is Antoine Boyer playing Scarlatti's sonata 113 (from his you tube channel, so I think OK to post):
Hi Marshall, thank you for posting! Fantastic video and outstanding performance. I love it. I played it 4 times yesterday. Also his guitar sounds really impressive, sounds like a sandwich top to me but I have no clue what instrument it is. all the best Christian

Hi Christian,

So here we go again. This is a transcription of an other piece of the same composer, Carlos Seixas. Originally for Harpiscord. I find that the Harpiscord music sounds much better on the guitar!

This was posted by member @David Conti about three years ago. Stephen Brew playing his transcription of Fats Waller's (1904-1943) 'Ain't Misbehavin.'

I think this is OK to post. It's the allegro solomne from Barios' La Catedral. And if my osmosis of Portuguese is any guide, it is being played by Elodie Bouny from the original score with Yamandu Costa improvising. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Going back to the guitar as comparable to a miniature orchestra. There shouldn't be an issue with a 7 piece rock band then. :)

Andrea Pennati is a member of the duo (? maybe the group has a fluid membership, I don't know) Inventionis Mater. Here playing his arrangement of Frank Zappa's opus; Peaches en Regalia

I've been enjoying the Russian 7 string guitar lately. It's difficult to figure out copyright issues when you can't read the language. There's a clue on this one however, with a date (1791-1837) after a name I assume to be the composer.

Searching the internet for "composer" with above dates comes up with this:

" Mikhail Timofeevich Vysotsky - Russian guitarist-virtuoso and guitar composer. He learned the guitar playing by S. N. Aksenov. He was interested for classics, especially for Bach, whose fugues he tried to arrange for the guitar. This affected the serious and noble style of his guitar compositions: most of all phantasies and variations of Russian folk themes (cycles from 4-5 variations with "preludes" and "endings"), there are also arrangements for the guitar of Mozart', Beethoven' and Fild's pieces (the musician knew the last) and others. 83 of them are issued, also his "Practical and theoretical school for the guitar" (1836)."

This is from the performers own channel. I think his first name is Evgeny.

It is the arranger, but yes. The text shown at the beginning of the video says:

Which means:

Variations on a theme
from the Russian folk song
"Oh, mother, I have a headache"
[arranged] by M.T. Vysotsky (1791-1837)
.
