Favourite Lagrima performance?

Post by 6strings » Wed Oct 05, 2016 4:50 pm

There is some other thread where somebody claimed there is no stupid question, so regardless of my doubts, I decided to give it a try. Just wonder which ones is your favourite performance of Lagrima (artist, recording, yt-clipp whatever). I have several hundred of guitar recordings, but I give a kidney if I can make my mind which one is my favourite one.

I am in no search for a discussion about taste, just want to steel best parts :-).

Probably the one I played for my Grade 5. The stuff out there in YT/CD-land is all very much of a muchness; you can't do a lot of interpretation with a 90 second tune.

Nice but not my choice. I've just listened to six performances on YT and didn't like any of them. I find this odd. I've recorded this a couple of times and didn't like my own performances either. Such a simple piece but I find it usually over-dramatised.

I'm not a fan of Peo either - too much reverb for me. I would suggest checking out Tavi Jinariu's version.

Love the guitar sound! But again I find the performance over-dramatic and affected. Just a personal thing.

Are you speaking of Peo's version or Tavi's?

Tavi's version. Lovely sound but not calm and simple enough for me.

There is a DVD produced by Mel Bay, titled: Francisco Tárrega: His Life and Music, narrated by guitar historian Graham Wade, with Stanley Yates illustrating on the guitar the main aspects of Tarrega's style as player and composer, and playing some of Tarrega's pieces. His interpretation of Lágrima is probably one of my favorites. Not over dramatized, but very touching, nice.

I've never really been drawn to Lagrima personally, but if you're looking for something different from the norm, search on YT "Patrick Kearney Plays A Kamil Jaderny Guitar" and pick the first result. I actually like how dynamic it is played, but I'd imagine some will find it overly done. I personally like very expressive players.

This is the beauty of music - being able to here 10 different renditions of the same song and appreciating/enjoying rather than criticizing what each person brings to the table.

Maybe the next time you play it and it flows like magic? this does bring up the old chestnut about recordings and all the variables.Also out front of a guitar , and playing it oneself with the tactile pleasure etc...

I liked this one. I also like Tatyana Ryhskova's version on YT. Wish I knew how to post a link.

I don't remember if he played Lagrima, but Tilman Hoppstock played a few Tarrega pieces at the GFA convention in 2014. When I saw them on the program I thought, 'oh great the same old Tarrega pieces'. His performance was spectacular, and he really captured the character of Tarrega's music.I think it's easy for us to think of them as 'small' pieces, but there's really much more to them than that.
