Brazilian guitar superstar, Fabio Zanon, brings Colombian composer, Gentil Montaña’s music to life in this splendid rendition of Porro from the Suite Colombiana Nº2. The production of this video is wonderful and comes via the GuitarCoop. Fabio’s joyful, clear, and musical playing is perfectly complemented by the Hauser II guitar he plays in this video. You’ll listen to this more than once!
Here is another wonderful and recent production from Brasil’s GuitarCoop featuring the brilliant Italian virtuoso, Aniello Desiderio performing composer George Schmitz’s Wie Die Nacht Übers Land Kommt new composition. Translated as How the Night Comes Over the Land, I have found my ear unable to stray when listening to this piece, perhaps under the spell of the approaching night. I hope you enjoy the composition and performance as much as I did.
For more details, another wonderful guitarist, Fabio Zanon introduces the piece.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Marcelo Kayath. His recordings from the 80s had a huge impact on my life and I still think the sound of those records is wonderful in many ways.
So, it was with great delight that I heard that he was recording again! Here is a video of the Gigue and Double from Bach’s 2nd Lute Suite, BWV997.
Though I’m not sure whether or not he founded the wonderful Brazilian Guitar Coop Website/Production Company, it is worth checking out on many fronts – from beautifully shot videos, to amazing artist and recordings, to sheet music, it’s a wonderful resource.
Here is Fabio Zanon interviewing Marcelo. There are many pieces of great advice from Marcelo as he tells his story and what led to recording again.
More coming soon…
