Tomasz Fechner – Cordoba Master Series ‘Rodriguez’

tomek_asturiasWe have another video of Tomasz Fechner, this time playing Isaac Albeniz’ Asturias on a Cordoba Master Series ‘Rodriguez’ cedar-top. Tomasz is at USC studying on a Fullbright and just had his scholarship renewed for at least another year, so we look forward to shooting more videos with him!

I admire and respect Kenny Hill for taking the time to build replicas of famous maker guitars.

He has developed an understanding how instruments should perform and feel.

What’s more, he has made these instruments affordable for the mid-price market.

I congratulate him for his passion.

So it’s all about the guitar and not a bloody word about the player? How insulting! It’s always interesting to me how jealousy and envy rear up at times like this and are so well seated in resentment. Pathetic!

The mans playing was so beautifully nuanced and subtle—delicate yet forceful—compelling and decisive. He served that piece well and definitely has a real future.

P.S.—The guitar sounded nice too

Peter,
Calm down! Haven’t you noticed GSI does sell guitars? GSI brings us world class performers to play guitars we dream of owning. The artistry is, without question, superb, but, hey–we watch this site for guitars first, players second.

Beautiful performance, and the finale, wow, that is different but it adds a strong Flamenco touch; which after all, Albeniz got his inspiration from, right?

He records well. However, a rather quiet technique, am not certain if his playing will project well in a concert hall,…. perhaps a small one. Imagine as maturity develops, abilities to play stronger, project more, use of larger dynamic range will progress.

Hey Jack-don’t be condescending by pointing out the obvious. GSI will sell guitars whether we comment on the player or not. It’s understood why we watch this site but let’s remember one fundamental thing–the guitar,or any instrument for that matter, is meaningless without a player to breathe life into it. In that respect I find his comments sorely lacking. It’s like looking at a magnificent painting and only commenting on the quality of the canvas and the smartness of the frame.
