Our friend Olivia Chiang was back at GSI last week to play some new pieces for us. She played Barrios’ Mazurka Appassionata on a beautiful new 2018 Vladimir Druzhinin guitar in cedar and African rosewood and Shadow Box by Darragh O’Neill on a fantastic 2007 Michel Bruck in spruce and CSA rosewood.

    Not a particularly impressive piece, but, my God, what a mechanical performance. Cough, cough, do you folks at GSI have no musical EARS??? Oh, wait, you’re in business to sell guitars, something I forgot for a moment. C’est la vie, eh?

    Very impressive piece. I really don’t know why Nivram ask if anyone at GSI have any musical ears. I understood it clearly. I guess my musical thoughts and comprehension is keeping up with the times of musical changes.

    I liked the piece, unfortunately the guitar was not it tune.

    So, the playing of the Barrios was fantastic. A VERY difficult tune. You get a lot of “music” out of the guitar by how you are striking the strings. But moving your right hand up and down along the strings will produce another range of color that you do not explore in this one. I know that the many harmonic notes limit that option to some degree but the tune is begging for it. In all: Fabulous job!!!
