Rebeca Oliveira plays Carlos Seixas

I fell instantly in love with this music. Carlos Seixas (1704-1742) was a Portuguese Baroque organist and composer. Guitarist Rebeca Oliveira arranged his sonata 23 and 24 for guitar and can be bought at Les Productions d'Oz (in print or pdf).

Really beautiful music and nice video recording... I like the "open strings Berlin" edition.
Seixas is counted as one of the Scarlatti follower, and you can really hear it... :casque:
:merci:

I recently read "Evenings with Horowitz" by David Dubal. Horowitz was known for his transcriptions of Scarlatti but refused to publish any. His attitude was to let other musicians do it themselves as part of the creative process, feeling that there were so many options for interpretation. That said, I just found a Horowitz CD in the bargain bin at my local library and he plays a Bach/Busoni transcription. Artists can be contrary, can't they?

When I watch Rebeca Oliveira play I see in her eyes a certain glee, a care free abandon in her movements and an irrepressable connection to the music.
