Our friend Peter Fletcher was in town on tour and stopped by to record some guitars for us. Among the pieces he played was his transcription of Erik Satie’s Reverie du Pauvre, which he played on seven different guitars. So here’s Peter playing Satie on guitars by Kevin Aram, Hermann Hauser III, Paolo Coriani, Loriente, Kazuo Sato, Antonio Raya Pardo and the Hill Guitar Company.

    I think the Loriente Clarita sounds the best of all of them .

    The Raya Pardo sounds lovely IMHO ,but the piece is a little bit tedious, sorry to say .No disrespect to Mr Fletcher .

  3. Larry says:

    What is striking is just how very different each guitar sounds from the next one ,of course this is slightly pointless because it all comes down to invidual personal taste and we all have different tastes. The 2006 Sato guitar sounds the most powerful of them all but none of these guitars sounds like anything to write home about.

    Doing my best — and most likely failing — to not be influenced by the name, but… I think I like the Hauser III best. Number two for me is the Aram. I am not an expert by any means, though.

    I always enjoy this sort of comparison.

    Hauser, Sato balanced, nice tone

    Good to see Peter Fletcher play. Sounds good on all the guitars.

    Great to see Peter Fletcher back at GSI. The pieces he brings never fail to mystify and educate. I love obscure pieces, and Peter handles Satie with reverence. Surprised to see the Clarita in this bunch, but nice to hear it in capable hands.

    Thanks to GSI to put up these videos. And I have the same feeling that the Kevin Aram and the Hauser did best in the comparison.
    I played the Aram two weeks ago and I liked it really, as it has a very special sound compared to the other ceder ones around.
