obviously your expertise in guitar world is involved. I never cherished guitar specifically and know little about it. There is a guy arond here from AU, Peter Foster – he post here sometimes – if I am not mistaken he ether owns guitar shop/studio or somewhere very near to it.
I have two questions to ask you if you do not mind.
I am for years a big admirer of Stefano Grondona plays Llobet and Tarrega. Stefano plays Antonio De Torress instrument from 1885 with glorious wet and damp Mediterranean tone. That opening for “Capricho Arabe” is truly orgasmatic! Is it considered from your point of view the “contemporary play”? My question derived purely based from my ignorance and I would like to understand what you are talking about.
Can you suggest any composition and perhaps performances where a guitar duet or perhaps guitar trio play along with an orchestra? I think the 2-3 guitars are incredible powerful expressive tool in right hands and with right orchestration. It is shame that I never heard people write concerts for 2-3 guitars. Well, let it be not the Mahler orchestra but perhabs the Mozart orchestra… Perhaps they do exist, I just do not know about them… BTW, why shall it not to be the Mahler orchestra?Rgs, the Cat
