Bach: BWV 997 – Ricardo Gallen

Timing, articulation, presentation — not boring.

Video filmed by Paco Montañés and José Hidalgo in the courtyard of Casa-Museo Palacete La Hilandera in Alcalá la Real, Jaén in July 2013. The instrument used is a copy of Fabricatore circa 1820 made by the Luthier Arnoldo García with old instruments-carbon strings by Savarez Alliance. Recording in one take, no editing.

Stradivarius Guitar

Antonio Stradivari (Stradivarius in Latin) is known mainly for the violins he made. But he also made a few guitars. The Stradivarius played here, called the Sabionari, is one of just a handful of Stradivarius guitars still in existence. It is the only Stradivarius guitar that is currently playable.

Daniel Friederich, Luthier

A nice story on Friederich in Orfeo magazine, this time in English. Great photos.

Here’s Kyuhee Park playing the third movement from Brouwer’s Sonata on a Friederich guitar

And Roberto Aussel playing, with fantastic intensity, Yupanqui’s Melodia del Adios on another Friederich:
