A Journey Through 10 Strings
On A Journey Through 10 Strings, Perfecto De Castro, Filipino 10 string guitar virtuoso, presents 11 pieces pulled from compositions written from the early 18th century until the present. On it, Perfecto plays each of the songs beautifully and with a very unique approach. Is Perfecto's distinct sound due to his use of a guitar with a large dynamic or to the way that he approaches the instrument?
Aliéksey Vianna Plays Assad
Alieksey Vianna is at once passionate and cool - like the best of jazz musicians. The instrument never leaves his control, but one feels that if he let his guard down for one moment something quite terrifying might happen. This quiet, restrained but roiling power permeates every second of his recording of Sergio Assad's music.
