Chad Ibison plays Variations Op. 49 by Giuliani

chad-ibisonChad Ibison plays Six Variations sur la chanson nationale Op. 49 by Giuliani. I really like the sensitive playing of the theme with the contrast of the fiery and virtuosic variations. Ibison is really versatile in term of contrast and range of expression. Make sure to watch all the variations to see him really get going. Congrats to him for placing 3rd at GFA 2013. I had the chance to see Chad and Janet Grohovac play up here in Victoria not long ago. Check them out if you ever get the chance.
