Hanna Link plays Serenade by Gubaidulina

Hanna Link plays Serenade by Sofia Gubaidulina (b.1931). This comes via Siccas Guitars and their great YouTube Channel and played on a Francois Regis Leonard guitar. Great piece, and well played by this young artist. You can also see her perform in quartet with  Karmen Stendler, Stephanie Jones, Hanna Link, and Jakob Schmidt. I also discussed this piece earlier in the year for my review of Guitar Ladies by Heike Matthiesen. “The Serenade is a beautifully spacious piece with excellent explorations of colour and range on the instrument…The notes drift and fade but not without a sense of direction. It’s an interesting piece that really draws you into the sound of the guitar.” I believe the sheet music is in Orphee’s Russian Collection Vol. 5
