Antigoni Goni--Music. Amazing!! I was completely unfamiliar with Dominiconi's suite for guitar and Mompou's suite compostelana. These are amazing works that Ms. Goni plays brilliantly. Also Brouwer and Rodrigo.

I've read people's choice of music with interest on this and other threads and will certainly be checking them out. New music (or new to one's self) is always great to listen to and I'm always on the lookout for suggestions for new inspiration. However, and this is probably at a bit of a tangent to the thread but might be appropriate, I'm interested to hear what forum users might consider 'essential' recordings that all CG players should listen to at least once. For example, I've drawn a lot of inspiration and a deeper love of the classical guitar repertoire from:

John Williams - Spanish Guitar Music, Bach Lute Suites and El Diablo Suelta
Nicholas Goluses' recordings of Fernando Sor
Christopher Parkening's Tribute To Segovia
The Deutsche Gramaphone 2 CD Segovia Collection

Any other suggestions to fill the rather large gaps in my knowledge of the CG catalogue would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. Summer - The steel string players you mentioned are all fantastic and all opened my eyes to the potential of fingerstyle guitar, which in turn eventually led to my interest in CG - so I'm not sure it is heresy :D I've seen both Renbourn and Jansch in concert and can unreservedly recommend both as fantastic live artists and consummate musicians
Edit!!!!! - Didn't notice I'd gone to the 1st page of thris thread - ooops!! (Travelling back in time :oops: :? )


Not sure about essential but the 100 guitar classics collection covers quite a bit of ground with some good players and performances:-

Reliving the 80s, UK-style with China Chrisis

IMO - one of the better bands around at the time in the same vein as Simple Minds, Prefab Sprout, Level 42, Talk talk etc...

My teacher (1980-1982), the late Greg Coleman, had another passion besides music and guitar: mountains and technical climbing in California's Sierra Nevada. His "Yosemite Suite" is a brilliant musical painting of his favorite places in Yosemite. He was the son of jazz and session great, Budd Coleman, one of the original "Tijuana Brass." Greg was pointed in the right direction by his dad and studied with some greats: Fred Noad, Pepe Romero, Jose Tomas, Joe Pass. Greg's son successfully petitioned UC Irvine to award him his MA in music posthumously after his untimely death in 2005. He has made a few of his dad's scores available to some of his students. I was fortunate to receive copies of some original scores and arrangements this week and am enjoying his 1997 album now "Sarabande of the Distance. "
