i have still yet to hear it played with more aplomb and adventure than kazuhito yamashitas version.




In his hands the beginning does indeed sound a bit like a theme that could be used for a japanese martial art film :-)

Something like the main theme of the water margin (starting after apr. 19 seconds).

Hey Eric, I thought it was just me that found film music/pastiche fascinating.

Russian school, Elmer Bernstien, Aaron Copeland,John Barry and Henry Mancini and that's just the first twenty seconds.

That Yamashita is truly incredible. Amazing integrity of line given the unbelievably dense arrangement. What an arranger ! And such strength and colour. We are lucky to have him.

Caballero is a hell of a guitarist for sure. But am I the only one that got frustrated with every entry being at exactly the same dynamic and with the same intent as the previous one ?

RE: Elliot Fisk (in reply to gerundino63

For lovers of Eliot. In the first, BWV 999 he does the same crazy maneuver he did in his Segovia style tape made years ago, making a great leap from the upper register to the lowest and back. Really distracting.



For comparison (invidious?) Segovia at his prime playing the first 2 pieces. Interesting in BWV 999 at measures 31/34 he plays at pos 7 then drops down for last 4 notes in each measure. Eliot plays the same in the lower pos and uses a hammer-on for the d. I have been trying out playing it in pos 7 and remaining there playing the last 4 notes on strings 5 and 6. . I like that better than the hammer-ons.

From the same concert



even more amazing considering the especially difficult chords he was using was that he used one of those old school ramirez guitars with the 665 mm scale length and 100000 inches of action

Yamashita has a great set of arrangements but some of them were clearly reaching a bit too far. he transcribed a stravinsky symphony to the guitar and it was a little bit too much for me.

He has since not done so much of these arrangements and has been playing much pieces by local japanese composers.

i think he plays most composers exceptionally well except for bach. i really really don't like his bach interpretations.

I agree completely !

I bought some of his Bach transcriptions and they were terrible, too often the fingering was completely against the grain of the motifs.

And yet he is such a marvelous arranger, WEIRD. I had a recording of him playing the Invocacion Y Danza and the Moupou Suite Compostelana. The Rodrigo was incredible and the Mompou awful.

When he gets it he gets it in spades and when he doesn't he really doesn't. I find it completely baffling.

I remember, years ago you sent me this video and I just couldn't believe it.... Gerardo is unreal. We are often obsessed with the right hand but his left is unbelievable as well.

More classical guff...but then this is a thread about Fisk.

Eliot and Marco Tamayo burn on a Rodrigo concerto. Marco sadly now brought low by brain cancer. Eliot shows some impressive speed in runs and some flamboyant gestures.

Yeah, they really should have gotten some flamencos to play it. They are so good at counting.

Sanlucar aside, with all due respect, flamenco compositions are not considered at the leading edge of the musical world.

but then this is a flamenco forum, and the thread is in the general flamenco section - nothing to do with flamenco - off topic

a thread about Fisk is about as relevant to flamenco as this



and they play in time...
