Bokyung Byun plays Tedesco ‘Escarraman’
Bokyung Byun, a rising star in the classical guitar world and current student of Scott Tennant at USC, stopped by the showroom recently to record some videos with us. Bokyung is fresh off a very successful year of competitions, taking second prize at the Guitar Foundation of America Competition and becoming the first female winner of the prestigious JoAnn Falletta Concerto Competition. Needless to say, we were thrilled she made the time to stop in and play for us!
In these first two videos, Bokyung performs two Spanish dances from Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s suite titled Escarraman. She plays the first dance “El Rey Don Alonso El Bueno” on a beautiful 2017 Jochen Rothel with a Spruce top and African Rosewood back and sides. For the second piece titled “Gallarde,” Bokyung plays a 2004 Fritz Ober with a Spruce top and Maple back and sides. Enjoy Bokyung’s interpretation of both these marvelous Tedesco dances!
