“Will you sing, too?”
Barely any classical instrument is so bounded by misunderstandings as the classical guitar, even while great guitarists are performing in the major concert halls around the world today. Yet, modern-built classical guitars are designed for the stage and at the latest, Andrés Segovia established the classical guitar as a solo instrument also for big stages and concert halls.
First-rate composers as Manuel de Falla wrote pieces for the classical guitar. Easily-adaptable pieces for it’s predecessors as the lute were written even by J. S. Bach and his contemporaries. Due to the enormous possibilities the classical guitar provides, even pieces composed for other instruments can benefit from being played on the classical guitar.
A guitar can also blend in or stand out in an ensemble or even an orchestra: Numerous guitar concerts were written long before it was possible to electrically amlify the guitar.
