While not all are listener-friendly, this recording has some very interesting pieces on it:






I checked it on Spotify, and love its nocturnal aestheticism. His Tiento Francais is great as well. Thanks a lot for the info.

Which ones aren't listener friendly? What should I do to prepare to hear them? There was one piece i heard recently I really needed some emotional preparation before hearing..... :laugh:

What advice do you have?

Depending on your taste, none might be listenable! I can't quantify such an abstract quality, but several use extended percussive techniques, deliberate string squeaks, etc. The opening work is probably the most conventional.

I was saddened to hear that Lendle passed away last year. He was quite a virtuoso as well as a great composer. This CD contains some hari-raising displays of technique!

Very few of these pieces have been attempted on the guitar before this ground-breaking release in 1993. Very good playing and sound.

Ah okay, if it's abstract then normally the lack of any extra-musical aspect to the pieces I have no problem with. Only when I hear pieces which are certainly not abstract in their depiction of rather gruesome things (such as torture, like in 'Red Bird' by Trevor Wishart—which is a masterwork btw) then I need a little bit of preparation before I hear it. 8)

No, I'd say these are more abstract pieces than programmatic despite a few intriguing titles!

My favorite for the Bach Lute is Nigel North.

I love a number of pieces for solo guitar, but when paired with an instrument producing a sustained sound like the violin, cello, flute or clarinet, it can be absolutely fantastic.  Tonight, I am having fun listening to this duo  Izhar Elias (guitar),  Levan Tskhadadze (clarinet)

The CD is produced by the soundliaison.com studio, a dutch outfit specializing into hires sound

I've heard excerpts. If memory serves, he played them on a smaller, old instrument. I prefer them on a modern guitar.
Do you prefer the lute works on guitar as well?

I'm trying to get into these...after my recent allergy to romantic music BUT I'm making an exception for guitar and Carter is a genius. There's an added feature here: Carter playing on his finger tips instead of nails (which is some issue I don't really understand but seems worth noting).

This was on while my son was being born last Tuesday. The doctor said, "this is good music." It's my wife's favorite.

Congratulations to you and your wife! It is wonderful music indeed and I hope your son grows up to enjoy it just as much. ;D
