Nadja Janković Plays Un sueño en la floresta by Barrios

Nadja Janković performs Un sueño en la floresta by Agustin Barrios Mangore (1885-1944). This comes via Stefan Schmidt and his YouTube with video work by Jakob Schmidt. Wonderful performance with some beautiful phrasing and tone throughout.

Un sueño en la floresta (A Dream in the Forest) was written in 1917 and recorded by Barrios in 1929. One of the most famous of Barrios’s works and popular for its extended tremolo. “The Paraguayan guitarist Agustín Barrios established himself as a performer throughout Latin America. His performances in Europe in the 1930s were followed by a final period spent teaching at the San Salvador Conservatory. Barrios was a prolific composer for the guitar, sometimes, like the violinist Fritz Kreisler, attributing his compositions to earlier European composers. A virtuoso performer, inviting comparison with Segovia, he was among the first guitarists to make records. Although his compositions were left in some disorder, they include popular pieces in current guitar repertoire. (via this Naxos)”
