Taso Comanescu was back at GSI to play some of the Cleveland Collection guitars. Here he is playing Turina’s Soleares on a great 1965 Jose Oribe and Santiago de Murcia’s Folias Gallegas on a 1978 Robert Ruck.

That Oribe is incredible.
Agreed, first time I head a good recording of such a guitar. I suspect the Ruck is nice too, but it is hard to get a feeling for a the “normal” sound character of a guitar once you put a capo on it.

Well, that Ruck sounds mighty fine. No “suspect” about it.
On the Soleares, at 2:04, there’s SUPPOSED to be another G-major chord. This measure was deleted from the Schott publication, but Turina’s manuscript (File #33784 of the Sociedad de Autores Espanoles, Madrid) clearly contains it. so the “opening motive” all three times has the G major chord repeated 3 times in each segment before going on to introduce different material. No way to know if it was Schott or Segovia who caused the published error. Anyone who would like a PDF of this manuscript is welcome to contact me backline.
I’ve been waiting for you guts to feature this Ruck. It sounds amazing. Thabks
I’ve been waiting for you guys to feature this Ruck. It sounds amazing. Thanks
Dave – I’d really like to have the dots for this piece if you’re offering.
