“TUNING: 0 Fret=0 Fret (typically known)” Set, includes: 6th, 5th and 4th are silver wound basses, 3d, 2nd and 1st are metalonylon and 1st string is also supplied as replacement nylon.
American composer-guitarist and pianist Sean Hickey (b. 1970) has composed a number of works (including symphonies, concertos, chamber music, pieces for solo instruments, orchestral music and a film score) that are frequently performed. Featured on Smaro Gregoriadou’s album “El Aleph” (DELOS 3490) is his Tango Grotesco (2001) about which he writes: “It is an extremely humble homage to one of the greatest of my fascinations: the music – particularly the art music – of Latin America. A two-bar falling phrase of sixteenth notes begins the piece before the tango rhythm – in a way a caricature of one – establishes itself in thick, strummed chords. A quasi-fugal mid-section departs from the key center before returning to the tango rhythm and progression before concluding in the briefest of codas.”

Smaro Gregoriadou interprets Préludes pour guitare by Fernande Peyrot (1888-1978).
(00:00) Prélude I – Larghetto
(01:18) Prélude II – Moderato / Poco più lento (tempo rubato)
(03:25) Prélude III – Scherzando vivace
(04:47) Prélude IV – Vivo con fuoco - Più lento cantando - Tempo Io
During her lifetime, French-Swiss Fernande Peyrot (1888-1978) was considered one of the most important female composers of the 20th century. She belonged to the composers of Frank Martin's generation. Peyrot’s skills and unique music personality brought her to the attention of legendary musicians of her time, including guitarist Andrés Segovia and conductor Ernest Ansermet. Her well-crafted compositional output is quite extensive, including orchestral works, chamber music, choral works and songs. Until fairly recently she belonged to the mostly forgotten composers of her generation. Her four Préludes pour guitare, most probably composed in the early 1930s, show her at her very best. These are four delicate miniatures, contrasted in mood and harmonic and rhythmic development.

FYI: You have FIVE threads going in "Members' Announcements" for essentially the same purpose - promoting your efforts (4 overt and 1 in content if not title). From that sub-forum rules:

Thank you guitarrista for your kind comment. Since you took the time to post the same comment on each of the five threads, I am answering you in each thread also. You are saying in your kind comment, that my posting is breaking the rules of the forum. In each of the five threads (in my opinion) the subject is absolutely of unique interest to the guitarist who will visit the thread. Interest? How can we verify that there is any interest? The number of the views and the comments of the participants is a safe guide for one to verify if there is a unique interest in each thread. Also, in what period span these views and comments happened. Let’s see below the beginning dates of the threads and the total views, as of today, the 21 Sep. 2017:
Antonio de Torres film campaign needs our support Sunday 18 June 2017 - 620 views

Guitars upgraded acoustically by re-construction to "Kertsopoulos Aesthetics"

The views, one can verify, are satisfactory and the comments also interesting, which prove the response of the participant guitarists to be positive. Of course, there are exceptions, like yourself, where you do not like what is happening, fully respectable and understandable by me. However, I can assure you that I had no intention to break the rules of our hospitable forum as you are kindly accusing me of doing. Secondly, you are implying with your kind comment that the administration of the forum (which I fully respect in all cases), icluding all the administrators have not done correctly their job to really stop Kertsopoulos (me in this case) from breaking the rules of the forum. All these months, that the threads have been posted, with all the many views and comments, listed, you are saying that the administrators should have stopped Kertsopoulos from breaking the rules and they did not. Why didn’t you make a report to the administrators about your objection? You can be sure, however, that the administrators (it is my belief) know very well their job and they did not miss something. If though today, the administrators decide to close down all my threads because of your kind objection, I will be more than happy to close down all my threads, because the last thing I want is to break the rules of this very hospitable and kind forum. I wish you the best, in your progress, Yorgos
