Here’s a present from me to you — me playing Heitor Villa-Lobos‘ Prelude No. 2 for Guitar, recorded in the corn crib at VCCA on a very rainy day.
Please excuse the misplayed notes, the notes that didn’t get played, and squeaky notes escaping my cranky guitar which was not digging the variable weather.
A personal note about this tune: I always feel challenged by it and midway through the final section it always feels like I hit the 20th mile of a marathon. Not that I’ve ever run a marathon…
I hope you like it.
More Villa-Lobos here.
