Samuel Hines Plays Preludio e toccatina by Assad

Samuel Hines plays the 3rd movement, Preludio e toccatina from Aquarelle by Sergio Assad (b.1952). This comes via his YouTube channel. This is first time I’ve featured the excellent American guitarist, Samuel Hines. Great playing with some beautiful phrasing in the prelude and some very exciting virtuosity and dynamic control in the toccata. Aquarelle is a good piece and works well despite its obvious difficulty. The work also has a concise and modern 1st movement and beautiful 2nd movement that is also worth checking out. You can find the sheet music via SMP: Aquarelle by Assad.
