Slovenian guitarist/producer Uros Baric Plays Nocturne Op.9, No.2 by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849), originally for piano. This comes via Baric’s fantastic Youtube channel. Make sure to check out his personal website, lesson site Guitarise, and his record label Baros Records. Beautiful phrasing and cadenza work by Baric and always nice sound and video quality.
Here’s what he had to say via Youtube: “Nocturne Op. 9 No.2 by one of my favourite composers – Frédéric Chopin. This piano piece is a huge challenge on classical guitar, both technically and musically. I created my own version of the work that is based on a few different arrangements for classical guitar (Tarrega, Lopes) but takes certain elements only present in the piano original score. Unlike in the original the B part gets repeated in a lower octave and the fast cadence at the end was written by Francisco Tárrega. The strings are tuned half a tone lower to match the original tonality of E flat Major.”
