Laura Snowden Plays Villa-Lobos Prelude No. 3

English guitarist Laura Snowden plays Prelude No. 3 in A Minor by Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959). This comes via her great Youtube channel. Live at the 2017 Altamira Guitar Festival Hong Kong. Filmed by Drew Henderson. Some nice phrasing and intense musical articulations and expressive gestures. Bonus points for the extra level of vibrato!

Sheet Music: I recommend this newer edition via Amazon: Villa-Lobos Preludes (Zigante).
