Alex Park Plays A Fancy by John Dowland

Alex Park playing A Fancy by Elizabethan composer and lutenist John Dowland (1563-1626) via the excellent Guitar Salon International and their fantastic YouTube channel on a 2019 Dominik Wurth guitar. Dowland is one of my favourite composers and we are very lucky to be able to play his music which works well on the modern guitar. Great performance here by Park. He sets up the rhythmic feel and really keeps to it with ultra clean playing, nice phrasing, and clear voice separation. I’m used to a slightly more sweet and relaxed delivery but he really pulls it off with some high virtuosity at the end!
