  • I cannot attend live, but I would like to ask Antigoni her thoughts about changing Llobet's arrangements. With arrangements, we generally take some liberty with changes. His arrangements, however, have become such standards of guitar repertoire that perhaps we should be more cautious about making changes.

  • Unable to watch live, but I'm only a few minutes into the replay and feel like I should buy a second lifetime subscription to Tonebase. This conversation is marvelous!  I was a conservatory student decades ago and can't remember hearing the high level of musicianship dialog I find on Tonebase today. Thank you so very much, Anigoni and Martin!
