Thanks, Christian, for more great music. I watched the two latest videos you posted (you know that I watched the others previously), and they are, indeed, very beautiful. Sonata #42 (or at least, that movement) sounds remarkably modern for an early 18th century piece. Sonata #23 has such lyricism -- and she actually makes her guitar sound like a harpsichord! So, Bravo and Brava to those exceptional guitarists!

Thank you for replying! #23 sounds much like a prayer! I am surprised of the talent of these very young players.

Music by Sérgio Figueira;Sérgio Figueira-Guitar,Jon Luz-Ukelele,Baritono guitar.Picture by Manuel Figueira. He is portugues, but originally from Cabo Verde. A very nice example of contemporary guitar music. He is the owner of this chanel and of the copyrights - so no infringment. I absolutly love it.

Thanks for posting these. I missed this thread originally. The Seixas pieces with Silva and Oliveira I heard when you posted elsewhere. I've played them over and over. Loved the Valsa d'arêa blanca.

Seixas Sonata 14 is terrific.

I am glad you like it. I had posted 23 before on the same thread. These pieces where originally written for harpiscord and I find always that the harpiscord pieces suits the classical guitar very well and some of them sound even better than on the original instrument - somehow harpiscord is a bit noisy and too much sustain. Seixas was contemporary of Scarlatti and they knew each other as Scarlatti lived in Lisbon over a decade or so where he has written an important part of his compositions. Some of the pieces are available for CG, take a look at viewtopic.php?f=46&t=119874
