When Olivia Chiang was last here we thought it would be fun to hear her play some Bach on two great Greg Smallman guitars we had at the moment – a 1992 cedar-top and the 2003 cedar guitar that had belonged to Ben Verdery – to see just how similar to one another they sounded. So here she is playing Bach’s Prelude in E, BWV 1006 on two Smallmans made eleven years apart from one another.
16-year-old Olivia Chiang was back in for videos. She’s been coming in since she was 12 and it’s been really fun to watch her grow as a player. This time she played John Doan’s Farewell on a great 2007 Aaron Green cedar-top. We’ve got a new playlist on YouTube if you want to see Olivia’s progress over the past four years.
You can get the music and tabs for this piece at the composer’s website – johndoan.com.
