Here’s Laura Husbands playing Ricardo Iznaola’s ‘The Death of Icarus’ (Etude #11) on a great Jerome Casanova ‘Arias’ guitar, which is based on an 1893 Vicente Arias that Casanova acquired. Laura moved to Denver to study with Iznaola at the Lamont School of Music, where she now teaches.

    Wow, I don’t know when I can play that type of guitar because I am a beginner and my speed is too slow compared to the Laura.

    Very nice playing. Outstanding composition. Not only does the composer explore interesting harmony, he really pays attention to voice leading and tendency tones. He is sensitively feeling the pull of the notes to want to go particular directions. This is music that is organically developed, which is the mark of real classical music.

    Nice piece with some formidably difficult stretches. What is the low E string tuned down to here? Quite unusual to watch it vibrate *that* much when the open string is struck!
