Although Kishibe plays acoustic guitar, his piece "Hana Flower" sounds wonderful on the classical guitar. Unbelievably talented and beautiful music...

Wanted! an easy but beautiful piece

Post by superguitar » Fri Aug 14, 2009 7:55 am

I am preparing for my grade 8 exam. However, I want to play a slightly easier yet beautiful piece(cos I don't want to get super-bored with my exam repotoire).

Do you have any suggestion? Thanks.

Gerald Garcia - 'Etude No. 12' from '25 Etudes Esquisses' (publisher Mel Bay). Etudes 5, 6, 21 stand out also; 23, 25 too but are more difficult.
Astor Piazzolla/arr. Augustin E. Carlevaro - 'Poema Valseado' and 'Milonga Carrieguera' from 'Maria de Buenos Aires' (publ. Tonos Musikverlags, Darmstadt).
Oscar Roberto Casares - 'Adio, querida', 'A la Nana', 'A la una naci yo' from 'Melodies Sefarades' (publ. Henry Lemoine). All eight pieces in the collection are beautiful.
Albert Harris - 'Aria' the Neo-Baroque second movement of 'Sonatina' (ed. Barbosa Lima, publ. Columbia Music).

El Negrito by Antonio Lauro is very beautiful. There are several version on youtube (some played too fast IMO). It's only about grade 5.

This piece is quite pretty! Is it level 8? I wouldn't have thought it would be, but I don't have any books past level 1.

More like a level 4, but I thought the OP was looking for easier pieces.

Does nobody remember this being discussed over the past 6 months? Must we rehash all 14 pages?

Thanks for pointing that out. I've just merged the two topics. :wink:

How about Canco Trista by Paco Talarn? It's one of the most beautiful pieces I know and can be played with a lot of emotion at a slow tempo.

I brought this one to my instructor when looking for more contemporary work to play, and he just loved it; now plays it himself.

I second that reco. Beautiful piece and doesn't seem too difficult for this beginner.

I wanted to add Jubings pieces, as they have definitely become my favorite. The Indonesian Cradle Song and Once Upon an Early Rain are amazing.

If anyone can suggest other pieces like these, that would be great. What's great is they are easy to learn and absolutey divine to listen to.
