Alberto Mesirca Plays Scarlatti and Gilardino

The amazing Italian guitarist Alberto Mesirca plays Sonata K239 by Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757) and Studio n.49 – Paesaggio ligure from Studi di virtuosità e di trascendenza by Angelo Gilardino (b. 1941). This comes via the Paris Guitar Foundation and their YouTube channel series.PGF Series – Alberto Mesirca in Montmartre, another great video directed by Augustin Pesnon. Fantastic playing by Mesirca. The American Record Guide praised his Scarlatti as “The best Scarlatti I’ve heard on solo guitar.”

Sheet Music:
I love Fabio Zanon’s 30 Scarlatti arrangements via Amazon.
You can get the Gilardino Studi via Strings by Mail.
