Virtuosity: Anton Baranov Plays Legnani Caprice No.7

Anton-BaranovHoly Moly! This is some serious flare from Russian GFA winner Anton Baranov. If it was any other composition I’d have to trash it for being over the top but here he gives us all the flash plus articulation and a wealth of musical ideas.
