I am late to the challenge but as they say, better late than never. I am currently working on Sor Opus 6 No. 11 for one week. I don't know if it's considered a Monster but it is for me because I've never played it before and I find some sections to be big in the left hand. I love this rendition by Petrit Ceku.
As I previously posted, I am working this month on the first movement from Abel Carlevaro's Cronomias (sonata para guitar in three movements). The first movement is subtitled "Poco Libero (a little freely). One challenge in playing this movement is that Carlevaro changes the tempo and time signature several times throughout the movement. Here is the A Section from the first movement.
