Yuri Nugmanov

Posted by Kai in News

So David Collett and I went on this crazy trip to Moscow where we hung out with some great guitarists, guitar makers, collectors and other assorted characters. I lived in Moscow for a few years in the mid-nineties (long story, which I’ll explain, but no, I’m not Russian in any way), so a lot of these guys were people I hadn’t seen in over 15 years. One guy I hadn’t known was classical guitarist Yuri Nugmanov – we hung out for a bit and then he played an impromptu concert for us and I was just blown away by his playing. I’ll post more about the trip throughout the week, but in the meantime here’s a video of Yuri playing some Mozart. Given the backdrop I imagine it was some sort of Christmas concert.

    I’m thinking of a young Segovia. Absolutely brilliant–thanks for sharing.
