I’ve started a project this month to get some of my guitar playing recorded. For now, I’ll be focussing on my classical playing, recording both solo guitar pieces as well as duos that I’ve been working on with my friend and fellow guitarist, Frank Papineau.
This first track, Junto a tu Corazón, composed by the Paraguayan guitar pioneer, Agustín Barrios, is a truly elegant, romantic waltz—one of the few composed specifically for classical guitar. It’s not a very widely played piece, which is a shame, because I think it is so lovely. On the other hand, the virtue of it not being widely played makes it all the more special for a performer to have in his or her repertoire.
