Rupert Boyd plays Albéniz


rupert-boydOne mission of this site is for me to discover new guitarists such as this excellent find: Australian classical guitarist Rupert Boyd performing Torre Bermeja by Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909). I like how he really just plays which suites this Albeniz. If one is too cautious or careful all the time the performance can be very flat. This is great because there is a bit of grit in there although always still in control.
