    Iohannes Victor have you heard Bach's prelude in C minor (BWV 999)? There's a delightful theorbo rendition on youtube. Well worth a listen.

    This is it, mate. What I like about the performance is his use of time; he allows the piece to breath and that's exactly what that gorgeous bass voice requiress. So many examples on youtube played at a rushed tempo, imo. This is perfect though.

    I suppose there's no right or wrong answer regarding how musicians approach tempo with older works. It might be that a certain amount of license was given from composer to musician by default back then. Not sure when the eventual change occurred in staff notation, maybe around the romantic period. I know lute notation didn't give an eff about it, it appears the composers left them to it completely.

    Edit: lute composers did give an eff but there's instruction on tempo and sustain that you're wont to see today, not there back then. It's interesting.

    Those sustained two-note chords like at 2:09 are icy, buddy. Goosebumps.

    Ye. Suite 2 is my favourite, though all the movements to all the suites are a joy. I prefer Kirshbaum's performance over the likes of Maisky, Rostropovich and a few others of note.

    The lads join in.

    Alhambra is about there somewhere, not sure if it's the building in the video but I would have thought so as it's red stone. I only know about this via my old spanish guitar named after the moorish palace. I think it was made in Granada too if memory serves.

    So fucking gorgeous. You hear that style of guitar & the singer in the 'Persian mode', whatever it's called, & you can picture those damn swash-buckling gitano outriders with their Arabian horses and Cordovan boots and Byzantine samite... The soul of Romance!

    Also can't help thinking of the Flamenco version of 'Hotel California' by the Gipsy Kings, as featured in The Big Lebowski.

    Yeah, flamenco is gorgeous. The lute is the father of the guitar but the oud is mother to them all.

    Listen to Shaheen below, this might be a bit fruity for you but it's worth a listen. Arabic music stirs at the feels.

    Aw, one more. Have a butchers at Jesus Fernandez, a male flamenco dancer. I'd love to try flamenco dancing, all suited-up and stuff. Birds must flock.
