Alexandra Whittingham Plays Dyens & Mertz

Alexandra-WhittinghamCongrats to Alexandra Whittingham, Zoltai Döme and Búzás Ágnes for their fantastic playing the the Budapest Carpath Guitar Competition 2013.

I was particularly impressed with 17 year old Alexandra Whittingham who was likely even younger in this 2013 video. Her blazing left hand work, crisp fast tempos, and nice contrasts and phrasing. She’s playing Saudade No.3 by Roland Dyens and Tarantella by J.K Mertz. Kids these days eh?!
