I've known this remix by Koop on a Astor Piazzola piece called "Vuelvo al Sur" but never had listened to the original, and researched the composer until now. I'm moved by the deeply profound melody. It had my curiousity, now it has my attention. If anyone has other recommendations from Piazzola they are welcome.

On the TT an all-tube analog recording--superb sound and is quite a thrilling performance.

I'm listening to "Sleeping Gods - Thorn", a collection of EP tracks by the Norwegian metal band Enslaved. This is a band I have loved for many years.

Bogdanovic Guitar Sonata III played by Xavier Jara. I'm going to have to write some stuff later at the usual place about Bogdanovic's guitar sonatas because they're fantastic.

Haydn's masses

Preparing to listen to all the string quartets of Weinberg, too.

Songs From Our Ancestors by Xuefei Yang and Ian Bostridge.

A terrific album, beautifully recorded, with great collaborations on pieces by Dowland, Schubert, Stephen Goss as well as some stunning solo pieces by Xuefei - Drunken Fantasy being a particular favourite.

YT also has a great video of them doing Britten's Big Chariot which I thoroughly recommend. A great example of voice and guitar being perfectly matched.

RIght now? Yet another YouTube rendition of Pernambuco's "Sons de Carrillhoes", as I'm trying to learn it myself.

I've found out that piece myself only recently, is there a genre for that, sounds lovely.

Sonata Pathétique - 2nd Mvt. Adagio Cantabile by Ludwig van Beethoven for guitar.
Beautiful piece, beautiful transcription by Tarrega and beautiful playing by Matthew McAllister. Lots of harmonics.

I can't get enough of it at the moment. My favourite recording so far is Kevin Loh's.

I believe the genre is known as "choro". Definitely going to look more into that.

I think Per-Olov Kindgren plays it best and with subtlety.
There is Barrios' Maxixe, which is probably a similar genre and is very fun to listen.
