Canadian guitarist Emma Rush plays Air Varié de Vive Henri IV by Julia Piston (ca.1800-1842). This comes via her excellent YouTube channel and this piece is available on her excellent album Wake the Sigh that I reviewed. This is one of the works from her album that I thought was particularly good and overlooked in terms of the traditional repertoire and I’d love to make an edition of it. Wonderful playing by Rush on a period instrument Stauffer replica by Canadian luthier Miodrag Žerdoner. Make sure to subscribe to her channel and check out the album.
thank you –
Interesting to see a classical guitarist standing
…and wearing a guitar strap! But the instrument looks sturdy in her hands.
Hope you make an edition. It’s great to find–and play–music composed by women.
Yes, it’s already made, I just have to do some final edits!
