Tal Hurwitz plays Bach

In this series of videos Tal Hurwitz plays Johann Sebastian Bach’s Sonata Nº2 in A Minor for violin solo, BWV1003. The videographer, Sanel Redzic, a gifted and award-winning classical guitarist, knows how to capture a both vibrant and intimate scene for such a wonderful interpretation to unfold. Beautiful on so many levels!

Best of YouTube: Tal Hurwitz playing Barrios, Villa-Lobos, and Aguado.

Here is a moving performance of Israeli guitarist, Tal Hurwitz magnificently interpreting Agustín Barrios Mangoré’s Un Sueño en la Floresta. The elements of this video are spectacular. From Tal, who seems to invoke Barrios’ spirit effortlessly, to the hall’s acoustics, to the rich sounding guitar (Friedrich?), to the production (Sanel Redzic), all the elements of the video come together into a piece of art.

While there is no doubt of Tal’s mastery, I’ve seen very few who so effortlessly and musically perform Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Etude Nº2.

And to contrast from the south American composers, we can step back into the delightful world of Dionisio Aguado’s Rondo, Op. 2, Nº2.

Very inspiring on so many levels!
