Recommendations for new pieces to learn

Post by jackhuy » Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:13 am

Recently I've just finished Carulli Sonata op.5 1st movement. Now I am looking for new pieces to learn to progress. I'm thinking of Pernambuco's Sons de Carrilhoes or one of Paganini sonatinas. Do you have any recommendations?

Sons de Carrihoes is a fun piece, the second part is a little difficult. You also might want to look at "Se ela Perguntar" by D. Reis, fun and not too difficult. R

I was trying to find out what level the Carulli 51st Op piece on the guitarburst website database but I can't see it.
What level roughly is it if you're familiar with gradings? And what style of piece do you want? From Carulli, Pernambuco and Paganini, it sounds like you don't mind what style - I assume the Pernambuco piece is a trad South American piece of music?

I've been enjoying various Morel pieces played by Jason Vieaux and was thinking of looking at one of them.
How about Morel's Danza in E minor by Jorge Morel carrying on the South American theme? Argentinian rather than Brazilian (Pernambuco). No idea if it's a similar level though.
