I would be reading with interest any such threads and comments.
Many thanks for your feedback, Peskyendeavour
. I'm glad to know that you have advanced with Sor's Opus 60. The last time we talked to each other was about a year ago, you were learning Opus 60 #5 and #6, if I'm not mistaken. You are now in the #10-12 and that's quite an accomplishment
. As you may have noticed, although more complex, more elaborate and somewhat more difficult to play, the pieces become more beautiful, indeed. In particular, I like a lot the #6, #10, #12 (not easy at all because of the counterpoint measures), the #13 (a beauty) and the #14 (this one has its tricks, some strings have to be stopped at certain points). Further along, the #19 is also quite nice, the #21 is challenging (string stops all over), the #22 is an authentic jewel, as well as the #23 (not that difficult). I'm now in the #24 and the difficulty is to play it at the assigned tempo without mistakes. A pity that you are not up to recording your renditions, we would all be pleased to help perfect them. But, any way, keep on playing, Sor and other authors, it's good to vary a bit. Have you tried Francisco Tárrega already? A genius. Regrettably, he didn't organize his work in Opus, his pieces are dispersed all over. I have all five Volumes of the SONETO edition with his compositions organized, edited and published by Melchor Rodriguez. He still has to publish a final Volume with Transcriptions to guitar of pieces of various composers... Finally, I'm glad to know that you would be interested in future threads similar to the current one. A new one will be coming within a couple of months, rest assured, and, as your post suggests, who knows, one might include other composers beyond Sor. Thanks again
