Granados, Enrique - op.37/05 Andaluza - D09

Yes another version of the Spanish dance no. 5.

My version of this tune is slightly upbeat, but then I always liked Julian Bream's slightly quick version, and that's where I got my inspiration.

Hope you like it.

Nicely played, nogin. A bit fast for my taste.

You'r again adding some extra beats :wink: You could count those sections in your mind, until they are 100% internalized.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Paul,

Thank you for letting us hear your interpretation.

For a complete contrast to Julian Bream's version you might listen to Narciso Yepes—not that I am entirely sure I like his delivery. My favourite is the more relaxed and altogether more mellow vesion by Alirio Diaz.

Best wishes, V :merci:

I can hear a bit of Bream in this interpretation.

My preference would be just a tad slower in the first section - but thats just my personal taste.

Well played

Very well played. I'm familiar with the JW version, so like others, I can hear the differences. But does it really matter apart from our quest for perfection? If you played this in front of people who weren't familiar with CG music performed by Bream, Williams et al then they'd think yours was fantastic!
