I recall reading an interview with Manuel Barrueco. He told of being in a restaurant and hearing a classical guitar recording in the background. For a moment he listened closely, appalled at how bad the playing was. Then he suddenly realized it was one of his own recordings.

To be honest, I’m not like this at all. Once I get a recording to where I want it, I’m happy to hear it. But I have advantages over a busy concert artist like Barrueco. Unlike him, I don’t have to maintain a lot of repertoire. I can lavish all my practice time on a single piece. And I can record it at my leisure. If a recording doesn’t suit me, I’ll do it again.

Barrueco has more ability—I have more time. That, of course, doesn’t raise me to his level. But it gets my foot in the door.

It also helps that this particular Ferrer Nocturno is seldom performed. I’ve never encountered a recording of it. So far as I know, mine is the only one. Hey, that makes it the definitive recording! Now I can cross that off my bucket list.

Dammit! You’ll probably record it too, thus ending my exclusive status. Thanks for destroying my sole claim to fame.

I'll let you have this one for a while... I have my own list of nice pieces that I haven't heard any recordings of that I can swoop in on :mrgreen:
