most of 19 and 20 is not written for guitar, paganini and bach, i think you missed what im asking here: pieces that are exclusively written for guitar and are thought (or written) to expand and develop the range and expression of the instrument. im not talking about which piece is the hardest or has most complex fingering. im rather looking for an in depth view of a breakthrough piece and why it's ambitious for classical repertoire.
It's long, I give it that, but the samples sound too "new age" to my ears--sort of an Andrew York vibe that relies on convenient patterns rather than true music argument and depth. Your mileage may vary.
Yes, this one is a contender, despite being fairly unknown. And some very clever writing as well.
The whole of Bach's BWV 825 has been done on guitar:
although these are great transcriptions that show the range of guitar and I just love bach, and who doesnt? I'm strictly looking for guitar exclusive pieces.
