The music is the same obviously and it is charming and very engaging. The main sonic difference between this set and the Philips one is the sound and texture of the guitar. The orchestral tuttis are on a similar level sonically and dynamically.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm the Romero/Marriner version uses a very different version of the first concerto which I would argue is kiiiinda obvious due to cuts to the score and no wind instruments in the orchestra.........?

I saw them play at the Melbourne Recital Centre last night. Programme featured this suite as well as some other works for guitar duo by Assad, Brouwer and Pujol.

You are of course correct jessop and what I should have said was that the works in both sets are duplicated. Apologies if I upset your guitarist sensibilities  :)
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

This CD features my personal favourite recording of Brouwer's (first?) sonata



And you can see her play the third movement here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JFmZN1s5sF8

I've heard excerpts. If memory serves, he played them on a smaller, old instrument. I prefer them on a modern guitar.

Personally I really enjoy her clarity and tone. It'd a short disc though!

Jessop, you're familiar with Takemitsu's guitar works right?  ;)
Indeed I am! I like them very much but he really seems to avoid open strings so much that I avoid playing any! I'm one of those guitarists who likes open strings and lots of it I guess :P

The other guitar forum has been dead for about 6 years!

In the meantime, I've been enjoying this recording. I'm working on Carlo Domeniconi's massively challenging Chaconne. He basically took Bach's Chaconne and replaced all of the notes but kept the note values and rhythms (for the most part). Parts are much harder to play than transcriptions of Bach's piece, but it's also far more guitaristic, and dare I say it, more harmonically and contrapuntally interesting?



And a an audio-only video:

And another performance. I prefer Kavanagh's

I have it, and I like it a lot. Also, Kavanagh's video sounds great.

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