    Hello ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls...

    and TSR members.

    I had the chance to set up classical guitar society last year in college and had a concert which was "decent" considering we had little/no preparation and it was during exam times.

    We are planning to have another one next term and I'm having some difficulty in choosing a piece.

    These are my choices:

    Barrios:
    - Las Abejas
    - La Catedral
    - Un Sueno en la Floresta
    - Vals no.3
    - Vals no. 4
    - Prelude in Cm.
    - Prelude in Gm.
    - Choro de Saudade.

    Bach:
    - BWV 995 Prelude - Presto
    - BWV 996 Bourree
    - BWV 997 Prelude - Fugue
    - BWV 997 Gigue & Double
    - BWV 1004 Chaconne. (played last time by one of our members when someone pulled out)
    - BWV 1006a Prelude
    - BWV 1006a Gavotte en Rondeau.

    Villa-Lobos:
    - Prelude No.1
    - Choros No.1

    Albeniz:
    - Asturias

    Tarrega:
    - Recuerdos de la Alhambra
    - Capricho Arabe

    Sagreras:
    - El Colibri

    Lauro:
    - Danza Venezolano no.2
    - Danza Venezolano no.3
    - El Negrito


    Any idea what people would like to hear? I might end up playing one or two depending on the number of members that will join us (played 5 pieces last time).

    Hmm... I like Recuerdos de la Alhambra but then a bit of Barrios always goes down a treat.

    Out of those in the list that I know (the majority, btw), my favourite is Prelude No.1 by Villa-Lobos. I just love Villa-Lobos, but his preludes are amazing. Shame you don't know Prelude No.4 though... that's my absolute favourite!

    La Catedral's a tremendous work albeit bloody tricky and Capricho Arabe's one of my favourites from that list. What about El Ultimo Tremolo as well, that's always impressive.

    Thanks, SunburnedCactus and Roobagnall for your feedback.

    To be honest I'm not a big fan of Villa-Lobos so I chose the only pieces that I liked from him. I can play his Etudes and Preludes, but I want to play something no one heard me play before.

    La Catedral is pretty nice for me. I'm used to the right hand pattern in Preludio Saudade and Andante Religioso isn't really left hand-intensive.

    As for Allegro Solemne I was just lacking speed which I practiced a lot so it shouldn't be much of a problem.

    Capricho Arabe is a great piece, I just hope I don't end up moving the guitar too much when I play it, I can end up like a Yama****a in that piece :P It was my exam piece so it has a special place.

    I played El Ultimo Tremolo in the last concert as the last piece so I don't want to repeat it.
