Tim Beattie plays Allegro BWV 998 by Bach


Tim-Beattie-GuitarA well groomed young man playing the ‘PFA’. Sorry, that’s guitar geek lingo for Prelude, Fugue, & Allegro BWV 998. Let me try again: Canadian classical guitarist Tim Beattie plays Allegro BWV 998 by J.S. Bach (1685-1750). You might remember his name from the Montreal festival and competition, they posted a bio of Tim here. I love how he’s really digging in and his balanced articulation on the thicker voiced chords. He also really brings out the motifs nicely. Plus, I watched some of his other videos and he knows how to dress well! Mad Men style. Filmed in Mazzoleni Hall at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto by Drew Henderson (guitarist and video tech guy extraordinaire). You can check out more youth players as I always tag the posts with: Youth.
