András Csáki plays Giuliani

I really enjoy watching Csáki perform. It appears that he is really into what he’s doing and focused purely on the music. Exciting performance and some great phrasing. I can only stand listening to the Rossiniana’s if they have absolutely…

Interview with guitarist Jorge Caballero

Interview with the amazing Jorge Caballero! Apparently the awesome Austin Classical Guitar Society is starting a website (fretbuzz.org – not running yet) which will offer interviews with guitarists. This is perfect because they bring in so many guitarists already. They are…

Giulio Tampalini playing Podera

Giulio Tampalini playing Giovanni Podera’s Contrasti (Omaggio a Frank Martin). I like this for a few reasons. I’ve always loved Martin’s musical language, that mix of tweleve-tone serialism with strong tonal centers mixed in to keep the listener centered and…

Ferdinando Carulli – Best Sideburns Award

Carulli is good. If you think he’s boring then I think you’re boring. His music works very well on the guitar and is very effective period music and THAT is why he is freaking awesome. Plus, many of the duo…

Vintage Kanengiser playing Mozart

Some vintage William Kanengiser playing the Turkish March by Mozart. I have to say, Kanengiser can play better than this so you really should check out his more recent material. In fact the recording of this piece sounds pretty great in…
