My rendition of Fernando Sor Opus 60 nr. 12 was posted the day before yesterday, May 27th, as part of the Project Let’s learn Sor’s Opus 60 together, shall we?. I'm now studying the next piece in the Opus 60, the nr. 13. Looks easier than the nr. 12, which took me three weeks to put it in my fingers... :). I may be able to post it towards the end of next week.

I came back to Sor as well, this time with op 6 no 12 (Segovia no 14). One of the most beautiful Sor etudes I know, very Mozart-like. The piece is not easy and I am a bit horrified as I promised to my teacher to present it in one week time.

I'm working on Sakura Variations now. Some how I find the 3rd variation to be the most challenging part, which I thought shouldn't be the case.

Just started going through Ana Florencía, by Antonio Lauro. It's a sweet little lullaby and shouldn't take too long to work up, although some of the fingerings are a bit of a stretch for these old fingers.

Prelude, Fugue, Allegro. For whatever reason, I've never player this one so I thought I'd give it a go.

another Tarrega gem: Estudio en forma di Menueto, beautiful little piece with scales and stretches.

Here is how David Russell plays it:

Por Una Cabeza, it's actually quite challenging. At least for me.

I'm going to buy Charles Postlewate DVD and books, to practice 5-Fingers Right Hand Techniques. This is my current goal I'm working.

I am starting to study the Rodrigo's Aranjuez for the third time in my life. 😋
Two weeks from now is the first rehearsel with the orchestra.
Looking forward, it is quite an experience working with an orchestra.
