Very nicely played. Clear, ringing tones with the melody lilting over it all. This is one of my favorite Sor pieces. I personally like the tempo you play it at. I've heard it played blisteringly fast and always felt that playing fast just doesn't do this piece quite the justice it deserves. Thanks for posting this.

Very nice, never heard it played this slow before, but it does work very well and I like the way you bring out the melody of the tune.

Very well done Grant. You play it at about the speed I play it...I play most things slower than others tend to. It makes the music available for more emotion and interpretation in my opinion. There are two or three places where it sounds different from mine...I need to check my music to be sure I'm playing the correct notes. I play from the Segovia Studies...is this possibly that you are using a slightly different version from another source?

:bravo: :merci: beautifully played :D

I am learning this piece at the mo. I am finding it hard to find the version you play. In bar 6 there is a C to B in bar 7. In the version i have its an F# to B in 7. I have the Delcamp version as well and its also the same. Do you play the Segovia study's version?

Nice playing and recording/editing.

Just getting into the Sergovia etudes now and hearing well played versions is really helpful. What kind of recording/video setup did you use ?

Same here, around 1:33 on the video I'm positive I play that differently, but I play Segovia's version if that makes any difference.

Anyway, I think this is very nicely performed and echo all the other praise. :bravo:
