Very nice! Is that the one that is supposed to be a tribute to S.L. Weiss?

Did you record that with the Zoom Q8? If so, are those the built-in mics?

Yes, sort of. It was originally attributed to Weiss. There was a famous violinist named Fritz Kreisler who was a contemporary of Segovia. He used to compose pieces and pass them off as someone else's. Segovia asked Ponce to write something that they could ascribe to an obscure Baroque composer and Weiss was the ticket. After a performance, Kreisler asked Segovia about the wonderful composer and Segovia is supposed to have said something along the lines of, "I got you, Fritz." Many think that this piece inspired investigation into the works of Weiss. Eventually, it was correctly attributed.

I did recorded with the Zoom Q2n and used the built in mics.
