He seems like a very intelligent guy!

Thanks for posting it. That's one of my favorite pieces--no one plays it with the intensity that Fisk does!

To my way of thinking, Maw's "Music of Memory" should be considered in direct alignment with what the Bach-Segovia "Chaconne" was 80 years ago, or what the Britten "Nocturnal" was 50 years ago. It is a significant new musical peak for the CG repertoire (albeit not THAT new), a third pinnacle of equal importance to the two which I previously cited, and one which really needs to be mastered by any player who has intentions of making a professional concert career in this day and age.

It's hard to find a piece that is musically interesting/challenging, pushes players to the limits of playability (in places), all the while still sounding like music! "Music of Memory" readily fills all of those requirements. I heard Fisk play it years ago--a staggering display of virtuosity. It's too bad he hasn't recorded it. I think it's more musically accessible than Kurt Schwertsik's "Ein kleines Requiem", for instance, which Fisk has recently recorded.

He can talk the talk but he sure can't walk the walk

Sorry, but although I found Eliot and the interview interesting (mostly because of his passion for the music) I can't stand Maw or Britten. Very unlistenable music in my opinion. I don't know how people could sit through 20 minutes of Britten or Maw. Just my opinion of course. I couldn't see either Segovia or Llobet liking this type of music.

I'm not bashing Fisk, I don't like Maw or Britten really.

And I didn't direct that at you! Sorry--should have quoted the offending post. Will do that now. But while I'm at it, just because Segovia wouldn't like it doesn't mean it isn't good! :wink:

I think I agree with Gary, but you're right, let's not turn it into a Fisk-bashing thread. Fisk is a smart guy and very passionate about the guitar and the repertoire, but that's about as far as I go to be honest. I did enjoy listening to him talk, of course he could of let the interviewer talk a little more too I think.
