Steve Cowan Plays Weiss

Canadian guitarist Steve Cowan plays Prelude & Allemande from Sonata V in G Major by Silvius Leopold Weiss (1687 – 1750). This comes via Cowan’s great YouTube channel. Beautiful performance by Cowan with special attention to phrasing and a gentle delivery. I love Weiss and the galant style of the late Baroque. It has all my favourite qualities of the Baroque but with more flowing and easy to follow primary lines and almost classical style elegance. Video and sound by Drew Henderson.

I’ll be releasing an edition and videos for the entire Suite IX by Weiss this month, so stay tuned.
