Here’s Irina Kulikova playing Viktor Kozlov’s Ballad for Beautiful Elena on a fantastic 1967 Ignacio Fleta spruce top. This particular guitar is a bit rare as it features CSA rosewood for the back and sides, where Fleta used Indian rosewood on most of his guitars.

    Wow, GSI videos are really becoming a standard for how to record the classical guitar.
    (Yes, I know a great player like Kulikova helps too.)

    Man, what beautiful trebles. And she really brings them out to full fruition. Very few guitarists in the world can play at her level… IMO.

    Thanks for the post!

    Don’t miss Irina Kulikova if you have a chance to see her play. Her concerts are very entertaining with a wonderful dialog she portrays to the audience. Irina Kulikova is a World Class guitarist with a gorgeous tone combined with masterful technique.
    This piece is on her Russian music CD. Victor Kozlov music is a little hard to find, but you can also contact him directly at
    Mr Kozlov compositions are really great for the guitar player. Fabulous melodies that lay perfectly on the fretboard.
