Thomas Viloteau plays Grande Sérénade Op.30 by Napoléon Coste (1805-1883). This comes via his fantastic YouTube channel. Viloteau is one of my favourite players for his balanced musical approach, virtuosity, and down to Earth videos. He’s a former GFA winner and the Francisco Tárrega competition and now teaches at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. About his guitar here: “This reproduction of a Panormo guitar was made by George Thomas. It is fitted with basses by Pyramid and trebles by Fine Boston Catlines custom made by Olav Chris Henriksen in Sommerville, MA.”
