This two piece possible on classical guitar?

Post by tosunpasa » Sat Jul 22, 2017 11:22 am

I'm new to classical guitar and this forum, Chopin is my favorite composer, and I also love John Field. I was curious to listen to guitar renditions of these pieces but I couldn't find them, so all Im asking is if any of them is possible on guitar?

The Field might be possible on two guitars.

Not one guitar. Nobody I can find seems to have tried, and it sounds far to fiddly to me, you'd have to lose far more than 'some' notes.
There seem to be some flute and guitar arrangements, I can imagine that working.

That's the first Field piece I have heard (was unfamiliar with the composer) -- sounds very nice indeed, but I agree that one guitar doing that particular song would lose too much, IMHO.
Whenever I am not ready for my music lesson, I call it 'facing the music'.

Yes, I believe he is credited as the originator of the nocturne as a musical form!
