Nice interpretation of the piece Eliseo. I'm becoming a fan of Sor's music and it's always nice to hear pieces likes this that are new to me.

Thanks for sharing.

And this looking so simple, popular piece is, as a matter of fact, very beautiful music, which is a pleasure to listen when is played like Eliseo does. :merci: :bravo:

Dear Martin, thank you very much for your comments. I can assure you, that for me it is not easy to record.
I have to work very hard because my hands ....... I am 72, surely you're younger, and that means : “ Stop being lazy”
(Do not be angry, I´m kidding) :D
Best regards :bye:

By the occasion of recent recordings of beautiful music played by Maestro Eliseo let me turn our attention to certain, important IMO aspect. It is a question of brave, positive dealing with and overcoming consequences of age. It is perfect example for me that the music comes from heart and all "technical" means are to be adjusted to our present condition if needed be.

I remember that Maestro Eliseo has a guitar that is dream guitar for some/many players; it is Jose Ramirez 1A. But this guitar probably belongs to instruments that are not so easy to play. So instead of complaining, the Author of this thread went for another instrument that still allows his aged hands to produce beautiful music.

On my modest amateur's level I am in similar process myself: my concert level luthier's guitar constructed by Master Stanislaw Partyka become too demanding for my soon to be 72 years old hands. And instead of complaining I switched to my other guitars that are much easier to be played by me in my present situation, and I will let the Partyka go to better then mine today hands. I say all this to encourage elder people to play, just choose carefully and wisely the guitar appropriate for our present condition.

Jacek, thank you very much, your explanation is great!
1st category Ramirez, Fleta, Contreras, etc..are very good guitars, which are played
by young an famous concert guitarists. At least,when I was young I played my Ramirez without difficulty.
But there are moments in life that we find the guitar that suits us and not that we would like to play.
The years pass, the illusion remains, but the hands over the years become old and not respond as before.
This is life and so must accept it.But this is not the end, far from it,because life continues……
........... and now, we have to savor it more than ever !!!
Thanks for your time!

Yes, Eliseo, it is as you say. And let me add that I am still tempted by the "Ramirez sound". And I do not give up in my search; so far I have acquired new for me guitar - Kenny Hill, model Madrid that is designed after the Jose Ramirez design and well, I am somehow in "half of the way", as the playability of this Madrid model guitar is much better for me then other guitars that I know and it sounds "Spanish", even in real Madrid School tradition. I have also nice experiences with regard to playability with some lower Jose Ramirez models like 130 Años or 4R. The do not sound like 1A, but the "Ramirez sound" is IMO there, without difficulties with playing. The same is with some older (?) Japanese copies of Spanish guitars...So instead of complaining, I am still on the road :)

Jacek, sorry for not having seen this writing of yours before. I follow five forums in four languages, among many other things, and this makes me very distracted. You currently enjoy two fantastic guitars and I hope you enjoy them. Now although certain thoughts are in your thoughts, enjoy those two Spanish jewels of the house "Picado" !!

Eliseo, please do not feel sorry. You are so busy in the field of music and it makes us happy., as you know your music is known also in distant Poland and Ukraine. I have to confess that since I have acquired my Picado model 62 I do not miss the Ramirez 1A as much as before. Surely PIcado guitars are not the Ramirez and Ramirez is not a Picado, but high quality, Spanish sould so to speak, and noble proudness is there. And I will never forget who has introduced me to the Picado and has helped me to acquire my Picado guitars. Muchas gracias !
