Here’s Grisha Goryachev playing a 1997 Gerundino negra – one of the best Gerundinos I’ve played. The piece is Rafael Riqueñi’s ‘Garrotin’, from the album Mi Tiempo. If you don’t know Riqueñi, he’s definitely worth checking out – it’s hard to describe what it is about him that’s different, but I consider him one of the best composers in flamenco. This is one of his most classically inspired pieces, and while I wouldn’t describe him as overly influenced by classical, there is an element of that in a lot of his work, which is in no way to say that he’s not a thoroughly flamenco guitarist/composer. There’s an elegance about his pieces. Just check him out if you haven’t already.
