but Bream excels at doing Britten - one of my favorite pieces - Nocturne - I think I posted it under charlie's ID.

Bream's good, altough his Asturia's playing is not his best performance, i think..

from my little understanding, i think it's all about to play the piece in the most.. "pure" form of spanish guitar play tradition.. dusty conservatism -cultural that is- is certainly a fatal disease to the world..

apparently people were offended by Segovia's interpretations too - I've never felt that way. I think he is the best I've heard though I like Parkening and Bream a lot also.

i'd "dare" to say even that a more spanish play, such as segovia's or j. williams' is not emphasing the piece. but that's so personal taste, i know most people are sort of "offended" by Yang playing, sounding..

it is really good, yes, as it offers a "modern" vision of an classical piece. and it does work perfectly. plus, yang is pretty :p

i have a thing for X.Yang playing, and how she "renders" each mood of the this mythic prelude..

Thanks for the listen and comment!! There are several live versions on youtube you may want to look up as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nx7vOb7GNBg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9efHwnFAkuA you will see I made it closer to the speed of the master Segovia though I like how Ana attacks the piece.

although a century old, this hasn't aged at all. and i like the interpretation you did with it, although, i think you have a little too much reverb on your guitar. or at least, no enough damping. and you might have been more "theatrical" maybe - but that's my vision of it. anyway, this is really good, thanks for sharing this..
