This is Nina Fourie Gouws. On her way to the Volterra Project of Antigoni Goni she stopped by in Amsterdam because she asked me to give her spruce top guitar a French polish touch up. She also has a cedar top on which she recently recorded a Bach Prelude.
This is Nina Fourie Gouws. I wrote about her earlier. Ten years ago she came all the way from South Africa to Amsterdam to pick up her new spruce guitar and last month she visited me again, this time to pick up a brand new cedar one . You can tell she is very happy with it. September 7, she will play her first concert on it. The ones who won’t be able to attend can listen to her beautiful interpretation of the first part of Koyunbaba by Carlo Domeniconi.
I got a message from Facebook that my name was tagged in a photo. It happened to be from Nina, a classical guitarist from South Africa. She had discovered a package sent by me, and told her friends about it on facebook.
I was a bit worried that she expected a new guitar because, like her husband said, ‘that was not the case’
It happened to be a Bam flight case, her birthday present from her husband. As you can tell, she is very happy with it.
