Very good! I really love this famous piece and it sounds great in your rendition. And it's one of my personal "goal-setting" pieces (i.e. I won't give up guitar at least until I can play this one... but who knows? :P ). Really pity that Giazotto didn't write more music.

Absolutely beautiful Denian. :bravo:

I've never heard this piece on the guitar and but playing it on this instrument (and without the sustain) brings a whole new dimension to it - and it sounds great. :casque:

I think it is the case that a great piece of music will sound usually sound good on almost any instrument its played on - and you have shown that this is one of them.

Thanks for posting and introducing me to the work as a guitar piece - your playing is a real treasure. :merci:

I remember, years ago, we had this old phonograph in the living room and we used to have evenings when we'd gather around and listen to classics. Adagio was one of them.

thank you for the wonderful memories :merci:

I feel badly that I'm finally getting around to viewing this. I guess it's been my loss. This is such a dramatic piece and Denian, you play it so movingly not to mention flawlessly. Also, the quality of your guitar and recording is as usual excellent. :merci:

For some reason, I missed this and only now saw the op performance on YT.
I was on the way to my father memorial and told my children that this was my fathers favorit piece.
Browsing throug various perdormances, I came acrosd this one and was thrilled.

Amazing 💎!
I see the o.p. is no longer active, but wanted to say thanks.

It was nice to see this come up again! I really enjoyed watching the video, Denian. :merci:
So beautiful a piece....

Mike, Denian is still active. The Composer's group has black text, but it is in bold. An inactive member text is in black, but regular font not bold. M.Delcamp was running out of available colors for the different groups! :lol:

To my delight, active indeed, with over 6000 posts.
I was confused for a moment by the black text.
I subscribed to your YT channel, so I don't miss out again.
