Here’s Tavi Jinariu playing Isaac Albeniz’ Granada on a fantastic 1926 Domingo Esteso. Esteso (who was the uncle of the original Hermanos Conde), along with Santos Hernandez, is considered one of the greatest of the Spanish mid-century builders and this guitar is a very good example of why that is. Tavi is a master of the Spanish repertoire and it’s great to hear him play this classic on a guitar like this.

    That was a beautiful heartfelt rendition of an exquisite ‘old-world’ Spanish classic…well performed, with a most excellent command of the fingerboard. Tone was clear and warm. You have a new fan and I love that guitar!

    Very nice tone and well played. The guitar sounds warm and very Spanish. Good camera work!

    Dear GSI,

    Tavi is a world class player and he makes this Esteso sing like a bird. Thank you so much for allowing him to play such a lovely piece on this instrument.

    Kind Regards,

    Possibly one of the best renditions of this piece I have ever heard. I have a deep appreciation for Tavi and his talent.

  5. His plying is so sensitive and musical, very evocative. It reminds me of a poem I wrote for Irina Kulikova, a marvelous player also.

    EN TU MÁSTIL DE ÉBANO
    SE HINCHAN TEMBLOROSAS
    TUS SEIS VELAS
    CON SUSPIROS Y CON
    SUEÑOS.

    CLAVAS TU ANCLA
    EN LA ISLA DE
    NOSTALGIAS Y DE
    DE PENAS.

    EN TU OSCURA BOCA
    CANTAN LA ALEGRÍA
    EL RECUERDO Y LA
    TRISTEZA.

    Y EN TUS CAMINOS
    DE PLATA Y CRISTAL
    VIAJA LA ESPERANZA
    DE LA VIDA
    Y DE LOS
    SUEÑOS
