Great Guitar Performance

Here's a YouTube video of a terrific guitar performance. José Antonio López plays an arrangement of Fernando Bustamante's guitar solo piece, "Misionera". This piece has it all: dramatic changes in dynamics, some flamenco strumming, sul ponticello, sul tasto, tremolo, and virtuoso runs. Just the thing to warm you up on a cold fall day here in Canada.

Almost as good as the Paco De Lucia number: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89zM9pZzt0U

Great sound, terrible filming. When did it start being "arty" to have the camera change angles thrice a second? Long live the well-composed still shot!

Fantastic! I didn't know you were interested in classical guitar. Here is another good guitarist: Antigoni Goni. I particularly like her recordings of Agustín Barrios.

As a matter of fact, I just discovered a recording of "Un sueño en la floresta" by José António Lopez: Here. Magic! Captivating! In my opinion, one of the best classical guitar compositions.
