I like Regondi but I'm under the impression that, like most of his peers at this time, he was stuck to writing pretty and easy (to the ear ^^') salon music. Masterfully written, really, but still.
I just looked, he's born the same year as César Franck (1822). I wish he had written a similar kind of music ! Extremely difficult but no meant to showcase technique.
Anyway, I like his compositions the way they're. Apart from Starobin's recording, have you any idea if there are been historically informer recordings of his music ? (I love romantic guitar's tone)
I hope we'll keep discovering guitar pieces by him. A sonata would be cool.
Thanks for the correction, didn't have the score in front of me.
Edoardo Catemario has a CD with a few pieces of Regondi on it, He uses a 19th century (one of the best players to perform on one, in my opinion). On a few of his CDs he uses Giuliani's actual guitar, reconstructed of course, it sounds beautiful. I suggest finding the Regondi CD of his, it has Legnani, Giuliani and a few others on there- he plays historically accurate also.
