I didn't know it existed. Guitarists can see the original manuscripts of Tarrega, Sor and other greats. Tarrega's handwriting is especially beautiful. I still get excited about this stuff after all these years.

I've been studying and arranging a number of Domenico Scarlatti's sonatas these days and ran across this wonderful performance of the brilliant K208, as played by Andreas Staier. I love the way his rhythm bends, dips, falls apart, comes to full stop, and yet always feels human and expressive. It's a sort of improvisation in many ways - a form of speaking.
