I was in touch with a harp player recently, who has a transposition for the 'Concierto de Aranjuez, written by Rodrigo for classical guitar. He says the guitar piece is one of his favourites, but he can't play the chords on the harp. I've never heard This arrangement does work well, and has excited me into using harp with guitar! 😉
She is really a great singer. I saw another one where she was in Madrid at some festival singing there and it was interesting listening to the difference in Mexican Spanish V Madrid Spanish.
I love that piece, Rodrigo is a great composer, and blind! I also love the other one, for Andre, Fantasia para un gentlehombre, they are both great but I think I lean towards Gentlehombre!
Here is one version done by Narciso Yepes, a great guitarist for sure! He is here playing his famous 10 string guitar, I don't think he uses but the regular 6.
This one is in 4 parts, all available. Sound quality is not the best.
And the same piece by Segovia himself:
It's only in two parts. Audio only. It seems to be played a bit slower.
So did you get at chance to check out my myspace yet?
