What a Musical Eargasm Sounds Like…By
As a former classical guitarist, I’m a real softy when it comes to great performances. I was literally hit with one recently that I wanted to share with you…
You see, I was flipping channels back and forth and happen to catch this move (“Kissing Jessica Stein”) when, all of a sudden, some guitar music I vaguely recognized jumped into my ears and heart like a cyclone . . . La Catedral by Paraguayan guitarist and composer Agustin Barrios. The performance in the movie was given by Brazilian guitarist Paolo Martelli, and struck me as utterly MAGNIFICO!!
When I went to look up the piece – to enjoy it more and more – I found Martelli’s recording on YouTube. The technique was, as before, flawless, but the recording was fairly bad. I then came across Bosnian guitarist Denis Azabagic who struck me as equally talented, and gives one of the best performances of La Catedral I’ve ever heard. After hearing Denis’ rendition, I am now a firm believer of “The Eargasm”!!
Listen, and prepar to be amazed:
