Belarusian guitarist Pavel Kukhta was in town for the GFA convention and competition and he stopped by to record some videos for us. Here he is playing Dionisio Aguado’s Etude No. 27 on a beautiful new 2017 Annette Stephany guitar in spruce and Indian rosewood. You can learn more about Pavel at his website.
Here’s more of Alexander Milovanov, this time with a virtuoso performance of Giulio Regondi’s Introduction et Caprice, Op. 23, played on a Manuel Contreras N-2 classical guitar in spruce and ziricote. The N-2 is the top of the Contreras line before reaching the 1a and Double Top models.
Here’s Yuri Liberzon playing Manuel Barruecos’ transcription of Astor Piazzolla’s Tango Etude No. 6 (originally written for solo flute) on an absolutely stunning 1912 Manuel Ramirez, built the same year as Segovia’s iconic Manuel Ramirez that now lives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The guitar comes from the Russell Cleveland collection and its history is extensively documented.
Here’s Andrea Gonzalez Caballero playing Manuel de Falla’s Danza del Molinero on a great 2014 Pepe Romero Jr. redwood and Indian rosewood classical. Pepe has made very few redwood guitars, and this one has a beautiful clarity to it, reminiscent of the Miguel Rodriguez redwood guitars. Like all of Pepe’s recent guitars, this one features his reverse-fan bracing system and a brass nut.
