Thanks David. I'm not worried about "being faithful to the piano score" , I just wanted to know maybe the historicity of the arrangements, etc, which you've now provided. Thanks. I think I'll be learning the Segovia arrangement more or less, because like I say, to me it's a little more interesting then Llobet's. I think Segovia in general improved most, but not all, of Llobet/Tarrega's arrangements.David_Norton wrote:Segovia learned this work (and others) directly from Llobet. Naturally some changes occurred over the passage of time. Some were done by intent, some came about through happenstance.
Classical musicians (on all instruments) often get bogged down in thinking they must only play The One True Text of the composition. The problem is that not all composers think that way, at least not any more, though certainly there have been a whole bunch of OCD composers over the decades popping up in various places.
If you TRULY want to play Torre Bermeja with 100% authenticity, you need to learn it on a late 19th century piano. Anything else is a compromise to some degree.
Yes! I LOVE her interpretation, very beautiful! I'm also not looking to play the "piano version" thanks. I like Segovia's version(s).robinfw wrote:
That being said. Did you listen to Filomena Moretti play this piece?
And if so, what do you think?
Only positive comments will be acceptable. Or not.
