Raphaël Feuillâtre plays BACH - BW... 

Holy sh**t! Just when I thought I've seen some of the best classical players this video pops up. This guy will be taking classical guitar to a new level and standard.

Honestly, he got me in tears... A great combination of awesome interpretation and awesome material.

Thanks for the link, Ramzi. It is beautiful, a consummate performance, with a beautiful sound, well recorded. (By Norbert Kraft, who does a lot of guitar recording for Naxos?)

A couple of years ago Perroy was here in Austin. I believe it was due to scheduling constraints that he played in a small room, no more than 100 people, maybe fewer. I grabbed a front row seat, no more than 3 or 4 feet (1 to 1.5 meters) from Perroy. As you can see in this video, he keeps his nails quite long. His Smallman guitar has a brilliant response in the mid-high frequency range.

Perroy played virtuosically, as always, but I think it would have sounded better from a little further away. High frequency sounds weaken more as they travel through the air than lower frequency ones do. I was sitting about as far away as the mic stands in the video, but directly in front of the guitar, not somewhat off center as the mics are in their raised positions. Perhaps a little frequency shaping was applied to the recording?

At any rate, sitting almost in Perroy's lap, straight in front of the guitar, there was considerable nail noise, not the beautifully integrated tone heard in the video. Next time I'll sit further back, maybe a bit off to one side.

I've seen that video before. Thanks for sharing Ramzi. He is another monster player.

I agree Richard!
