Great piece, shame there's not a convincing arrangement for guitar but that melody line is very hard to sustain.

Yeah, though with tremolo and a good bass line, I think it may be possible. Something similar to Una Limsonita, maybe.
No pain, no pain.

I don't know if it's any good, but I just made an arrangement of it and posted it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MbYP3X6-Yk
My arrangement is an ear transcription from the Kremer video and moved to e minor from c minor. Let me know if you like it...(don't let me know if you don't :lol: )

Great work and superbly played. Thanks for uploading the video. It seems to be within my capacity with a lot of work ahead, of course.

Here are a few more. One of them is by Roland Dyens.

The problem, as with other pieces of this nature, is that the guitar simply cannot carry the long legato line that is called for, and so while it still can be enjoyable to play and to listen to, the guitar cannot do full justice to this beautiful piece of music. You actually need go no further than the very first note to see this.

Beautiful job on the arrangement and playing.

I would like to see the music as well although it looks like a vacation will be needed to learn it.

You haven't tackled arranging Piazzola's Soledad by chance, have you? If you ever do I would love to hear it and see the music.

Hi Ken, I just sent you a PM.

Soledad is absolutely gorgeous and I might indeed have a go at transcribing it. I'll let you know if and when

Cheers
