Dear members,
I like to present my new Tarrega recording, the romantic "Prelude". Guitar: Juan Hernandez model "Maestro".
Have a good day, best regards, Reza :bye:

Hi Reza,
Nice. A delightful prelude, one of my favourite from the Maestro.
However, I don't know which edition you use but I'll suggest to change for another one -- closer to the original score (e.g. n°15 here: http://www.vpmusicmedia.altervista.org/ ... ludios.pdf ; SEM has also a nice edition of Tarrega's work): The arpeggio with its strange chord meas.4 hurts my ears... :desole:

Yes, that chord at 18" is wrong, and there's some nonsense going on in the last two and half bars, but nice playing, Reza. The score Schneider links to is better.

Thanks for your answer and suggestions! :merci: Already thousands of guitarists have played this piece in the original. I will soon be publishing a book with my own Tarrega arrangements, and the original measures are printed in the appendix of each piece, so anyone can play what they want.
At measure 4, I play my own version on Youtube, I'm missing that the last three notes are not a chord, so I play other notes to it.
And m. No. 6 has no bass sound in the original score, it stops. At No. 7 and 8 I wanted to have the bass line on one level. Measure 11 is completely changed because the chord seemed to me to be too long and the bass stops too.
Decades ago I asked Regino Sainz de la Maza about this break, he laughed and said that Tarrega seemed to be in hurry when he composed this measure :wink:
Have a good weekend, best regards, :bye:

Sure!!!! He's well known to be a lazy composer.
By the way, how about Beethoven's 5th symphony: only 4 movements/around 30 minutes? Millions of musicians time playing the same notes!? The guy seemed to be in a hurry too...
Do you think you could re-arranging it? Maybe add a 5th movement? :mrgreen:

Please don't be so polemical!
Regino Sainz de la Maza's teacher Hilarión Leloup was a pupil of Tarrega and had told Regino much about Tarrega.
The wonderful composer Tarrega had really often written many pieces with much haste. After all, works of many years were at his house, even unfinished pieces, and there were also many scores that were issued only after his death. When Tarrega was 50 years old his first book came out, about 7 years before his death.
It is said that Tarrega was very nice and very humorous - not sarcastic as you are.
Best regards, Reza

My mistake, sorry Reza! I did not understand you were playing in the Hoffnung genre. :bravo:
