I loved your rendition. Perfect technique, lots of musicality! When I listen to people other than David Russell playing this monumental piece it gives me hope that someday I might be able to play this, too. Thanks for this amazing recording!
Thank you wevard for your kind words. Yes my friend you will one day play this perfectly:) one must practise slowly and love the music as you do..in time and if you want it bad enough you will. We are all capable of great things. I am not talented and im self taught, i just worked and worked at this for years before this recording):
fantastic, I loved this piece since I have heard it when I was a kid. Is the score available on this site or elsewhere? I ask this because I have the D12 book but could not find this piece there. Thanks

Those are very inspiring words. You seem to me a very talented player and a gentleman.

Wow Awesome performance
I do hear this piece for first time, really enjoy
One question only, how do you know that the difficulty for Delcamp forum is D12? or is an estimation? I have several problems to know the difficult of something pieces that not appear in Delcamp volumes.
I discoverd this video only yesterday. Over the last few years, since I first came across this piece as played by David Russel, I have listened to it many many many times (mostly by Russell, but also various other versions, including duets). I stopped I some point because I did not want to reach a saturation point where it no longer meant anything. I never thought it could sound better than in Russell's hands, and I am amazed to see that you probably managed to do it even better. At the very least the "tone" you get is in my opinion better. I have just finished listening carefully to both yours and Russell's rendition, comparing fragment by fragment, and don't make this assertion lightly.
This is a great piece of music that, as happens with various others, the sound of the guitar manages to elevate to levels of superb beauty and listening pleasure. Thank God for Handel, and for the guitar, and for guitarists like you and Russell. Even if this were the only piece you had ever learned to play in your entire life, you would deserve a spot in the annals of immortal deeds. I salute you, sir.
