  • Guitar or Piano ...

    One of my favourite pieces. I could never manage to play it on Classical guitar and I'd never manage it on piano either so I'll just leave it to the experts.

    Piano performance for a change.

    Boris Berezovsky - Asturias (Leyenda), No. 5 from 'Suite Espagnole', Op. 47

        I must admit I prefer to hear it on guitar too. I've never seen or heard it performed on piano until now but I think Berezovsky's interpretation, style and performance here is fantastic. I also like the way it was filmed - I love the way his body holds still and his hands just fly off the grab those big ' strums' - if you see what I mean.

        Here's a link to the blurb from his management agency.

          I prefer the guitar as well and I wouldn't worry to much about your not being able to play it Pol.
          I can't even hum it

            Hi Pol.
            I finally got a moment to listen and I must say that it is an interesting rendition bravely done and nicely recorded, as you mentioned.

              Interesting but true ... 'Leyenda' was originally written for piano and subsequently transcribed for guitar.

              I didn't know that until recently.
