Adam Cicchillitti Plays Toccata by Rodrigo

Canadian guitarist Adam Cicchillitti plays Toccata (1933) by Joaquín Rodrigo (1901–1999). This comes via his great YouTube channel with video work by the amazing Drew Henderson and guitar by Canadian luthier Jean Rompré. Exciting performance from Cicchillitti who continues to impress us. Nice clean and clear playing with some sweet phrasing in the slower section. As he mentions, “Rodrigo’s Toccata was discovered in the archives of guitarist Regino Sainz de la Maza over 80 years after it was written. The piece is more popularly known as the first movement of the Concierto de Estio for solo violin.”
