I found this stimulating performance on The GSI site. Alex was born in the Ukranian, but he now lives in Australia. It’s not just his face and body that is expressive because this extends to the way he phrases and performs the music. A truly accomplished classical guitarist.
Augustine Barrios composed many wonderfully lyrical pieces for the classical guitar. I have already featured La Catedral and Alms for the love of God, and here now is his Confession played by Tariq Harb. Tariq was the winner of both the First Prize and the Audience Choice Award in the Barrios WorldWideWeb Competition, so he is a good choice of performer.
Ana Vidovic plays La Catedral by Augustine Barrios, one of the hardest classical guitar pieces to play.
Ana is of Croatian origin and started playing the classical guitar at five years of age. She started performing at the age of eight and is now 37 years of age (as at 2017) and is an internationally recognised performing and recording artist. She plays classical guitars designed and built by the Australian luthier Jim Redgate.
I have featured another piece written by Barrios in my previous post.
David Russell performs “Una Limosna por el Amor de Dios” (Alms for the love of God). The last piece by Paraguayan classical guitarist and composer, Agustín Pío Barrios a Paraguayan virtuoso and composer, regarded as one of the greatest performers and most prolific composers for the classical guitar. His music remained undiscovered for over three decades after his death.
