The hot young whippersnapper vs. the seasoned maestro. Which is more exciting? Which is more satisfying at the end of the day? In the latest in my series of increasingly ridiculous comparisons (which are always a good excuse to listen to some good music) let’s see if we prefer the young or the, ahem, mature. Here are Bream and Williams as kids playing some standard repertoire and then as full-fledged guitar gods, playing the same pieces many years later.
Here’s a young Bream playing Villa Lobos’ Choro #1
And a head of hair later playing the same piece.
And here’s some fabulous video of Bream as a young man and an older Bream reminiscing about himself back then. This one’s priceless.
And here’s Williams playing Asturias and looking very 1975.
And playing the same piece some time later.
