Vintage John Williams Talks and Plays Weiss


vintage-williamsJohn Williams talks about and plays Suite in F by German Baroque lutenist and composer Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687-1750) back in 1978.

The video quality isn’t great but I love seeing these rare videos where he plays repertoire I didn’t know he played. Plus I’m working on an album of Weiss so I’m super interested. Willaims has played so much stuff over the years youtube is bound to just keep unearthing new videos.
