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 David González playing Homenaje a Toulouse- Lautrec by Spanish composer Eduardo Sainz de la Maza. The recording is made in Guitarras de Luthier, a guitar shop in Madrid. I think he plays it beautifully.
Tarik played at the competition in Omis, Croatia, last weekend and took a second prize in his category. He also had a very successful masterclass with a respectful professor Xhevdet Sahatxhija from Zagreb.
It’s always nice to keep track of the players of my instruments.
This is Viktor Nadj, playing Prelude BVW 996 by J.S. Bach. Viktor was born in 1999 and started to play the guitar at the age of seven. He completed Elementary Music School in Belgrade, in the class of professor Nenad Petrovic and is now studying with Aleksandar Hadzi Djordjevic at the Vatroslav Lisinski Music School in Belgrade. Despite his young age Viktor won 18 first prizes in music competitions. When you listen to his version of Bach’s Prelude, you understand why.
