Matt Palmer Plays La Joia by Vicente Asencio


Matt PalmerMatt Palmer playing Vicente Asencio’s La Joia, from Collectici Intim, on a 2002 Edmund Blochinger classical guitar at the Guitar Salon International showroom in Santa Monica, CA. I really like Palmer’s playing, he has all the virtuosity of modern players but also digs in and never looks like a sterile technique experiment! He plays with some great articulations and sharp contrasts in this work by Spanish composer Vicente Asencio (1908–1979).
