In the beginning of this video... Reminds me of Händel:

It sounds a little like Country Gardens by Percy Grainger, doesn't it?

It's also rather like a piece called la Tia y la Sobrina by Santiago de Murcia, although my copy of that, in Stanley Yates's Graded Repertoire for Guitar [/i]Book 2, is marked lively and this rendition certainly isn't that.

Thank you. But, I'm still not convinced :)

You're welcome! The Bardenklänge is a great work. Adam Holzman has a wonderful recording of the complete opus.
