Irina Kulikova was back at GSI for some more videos and left us with some beautiful performances. Here she is playing Mogiana by the great guitarist-composer Konstantin Vassiliev on a 2007 Gernot Wagner double-top that features a spruce outer soundboard and a cedar inner one, and Vals from California Suite by Joe Maria Gallardo del Rey on a stunning 1929 Hermann Hauser I.

    Both powerful guitars, but the Hauser is sweet and powerful. The Wagner seems to be raw power.
    Great contrast and wonderful playing.

    Both fantastic and musical performances by Ms Kulikova of (in my opinion) difficult pieces. She’s wonderful! I’m already familiar with the Wagner sound from Jason Vieaux’s recordings. I hear similar tones from this Wagner, and his. I like them. But, I’m still drawn to the organic sound of the old Hauser guitars. Only one man’s opinion…I love them both.

    The Hauser wins for sound in these two excellent performers, no contest.
