Hi, Chris

I'm glad to tell you that thanks to you (along with other stuff), I decided to become a music student. I'm currently finishing my music classes at college and transferring to University of Texas at San Antonio for next Fall. Can I ask you for some advice? I'm looking for new repertoire right now and I was wondering if I could have your opinion.

Here's what I've worked since I enrolled in college:
Fernando Sor - Etude No. 17 Op. 35
J.S. Bach - Bourré (I don't know where is this from, the transcription is in A major), Allemande BWV 996
FranciscoTárrega - Lágrima
Leo Brouwer - Estudios Sencillos: I, IV; El Decamerón Negro: El Arpa del Guerrero
Robert DeVisée - Suite in D minor (Prelude, Alemande, Sarabande, Bourré)
Heitor Villa-Lobos - Etude I
Yukihiro Yoko - Sakura (Theme And Variations)
Santiago De Murcia - Villanos
Jose Luis Merlin - Evocación (from Suite Del Recuerdo)
Manuel M. Ponce - Estrellita

J.S. Bach - Inventions 4 ad 8 (w/bassist)
John Dowland - Come Again (w/soprano)

and here's what I've considered:
Matthew Dunne - a few of the 20 Miniatures
Astor Piazzolla - La Muerte Del Angel (tr. Baltazar Benítez)
Roland Dyens - Fuoco
Agustn Barrios - La Catedral

Then again, I would like to know your opinion.

Thank you in advance for your time!
