Very impressive. Your performance really moved me.... :D
I have loved this piece for many years (in a recording by the danish virtuoso-guitarist; Kaare Norge) and only a couple of days ago i heard a recording by Manuel Barruecco - and i must say that your performance gives me (...almost :wink: ) as much listening pleasure...
Beatiful tonecontrol and phrasing..

Hi Jeff,

great performance of a great piece. I always love the music of Albeniz but it is always so damn hard to play :shock: Great work with this recording. It inspires me to pick up this piece as well (or finally finish the also beautiful Cordoba :? )

Which sheetmusic do you use? I have a japanse book (Albeniz & Granados) but I think there are better ones available.

Thanks for the inspiration :merci:

nicely done Jeff. I've got Breams version and apart from the fast bit (where, lets face it, he's just showing off) yours is as enjoyable. Thanks.

Holy Smokes ! :shock: Why go to the music store and buy Parkening (just one of my heros), Williams, and now Carter when pieces like this are shared so freely. But you know what-- Jeff if you ever put together a CD, reserve a copy for me to buy- and not only is the music a joy to hear, but the guitar is soooo sweet - the sound is incredible.
:merci: Mike
