An fantastic interview with Rosie Bennet and her performance of Prelude, Fugue, and Allegro BWV 998 by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). This comes via Open Strings Berlin and their amazing Youtube Channel. Great playing and bonus points for conducting the interview over a beer! “Rosie Bennett talks about the classical music climate, what she loves about the Prelude, Fugue & Allegro and Bach’s music in general and what it means to be a female guitar player in a still very man-dominated world.” So happy to find Open Strings Berlin as they are very high quality and are a great look into the young Berlin guitar scene. I like one of their tags “We want to take our time. Really examine the individual, create room and space for their playing, their instrument and their persona, so you can get to know the artists.”
