I just found this post but don't know if anyone ever replied. I'm interested in the same question. There's a YT of John Williams playing the C d'A and on many occasions he doesn't play the written score. Mostly, it seems, he alters it to make it easier to play - which is fair enough, I suppose - although I wouldn't dare do the same. Are there accepted simplifications of this piece - or is he just so confident that he can do what he likes, while every one else has to struggle with the real thing?tremolo_jones wrote: ↑Thu Nov 23, 2006 6:14 pmI think a better question is this:
If you play the Concierto de Aranjuez, what notes do you play?
I don't think anyone plays the actual guitar part as published. Even Angel Romero, who edited the Schott edition with his fingerings, doesn't actually play it as written.
If you play it what are your shortcuts and accomodations?
I follow many of the edits made by Williams, I think Barrueco and Romero play it exactly as written but personally I feel dropping a few phrase down an octave sounds better.
