Wonderful, César, congratulations... but beyond my capabilities, unfortunately :cry:. I have, however, two more questions, if you care to answer them:
  1. I'm assuming this is a transcription from a piano score, as I never heard Carlos Seixas produced music for guitar. Are there other transcriptions around?
  2. Which guitar is yours (luthier, model, year) and which strings are you using?

Hermanos Camps Master, 650 mm, Cedar, 2014 (Nº 3), Spain

Thanks for all your kind comments.
Carlos Seixas was one of the best baroque portuguese composers.
It is believed that he wrote more than 700 sonatas. However, because of the 1755 earthquake, only around 200 were recovered(we always tell this story).
The transcription from the harpsicord was made by composer Sandra Ferreira.
The guitar is from Óscar Cardoso made in 2015. I use super hard tension strings.

Hi, this one sounded very interesting! I haven't heard any music by Seixas played with a guitar. It was a well done performance of a piece that obviously is quite demanding. A pleasure to hear!
