Samuel Moore's Interview with Grisha 

Samuel's interviews are really superb. They transcend instrument and genre, and are universally useful and informative. He's really very good at this, some of the very best interviews I've seen.

RE: Samuel Moore's Interview with Grisha (in reply to silddx

Every year for the last 20 or so Austin Classical Guitar's first concert of the season has been presented to a small audience at the house of a local billionaire. You get a house concert, dinner and wine. You get a receipt for much of the ticket price as a contribution to the Society.

Grisha has been a frequent artist at these concerts. A year ago he played flamenco in the towering salon to an audience of about 60.

Afterward, while we socialized with the rest of the audience and had a glass before dinner on the huge balcony with a distant view of the Austin skyline, Larisa spoke with Grisha in Russian for a while and invited him to sit at the same table for six as we did.

Grisha and I had chatted briefly a few times before. As it turned out, we talked for about an hour over dinner and a couple of glasses of wine. The catering staff took care not to pour out too much.

One thing that stuck with me: Grisha said he felt that he had played Paco's music enough to have learned something personal about Paco himself, which paralleled something in his own life. I was tempted to ask for explanation, but since Grisha had used the word "personal," I didn't pursue the subject.

Larisa and I both really like and admire Grisha. After her first conversation with him at a similar get-together a few years ago, I asked her what he was like in Russian. She said that, unlike some Russian males of her acquaintance, he is humble and sincere.

I liked Moore's interview with Grisha a lot. The same goes for his talk with John Walsh.

Thank you for this anecdote, Richard. He seems to be the very soul of humility, so self aware. I loved the interview too.

These guys seem very serious in this interview. My brief time with Grisha was hilarious, the guy is a real comedian. For example, I was driving him in the van and we where listening to some flamenco and he asked who was this, and I explained it was something new from Diego del Morao, you know, the son of Moraito. And he was like, in that serious Russian tone, “who is this ‘Moraito’ you speak of??” And the laughs never ended after that. . We shut down two different bars having juerga that night.

There's a time and a place I suppose.

What he said at 14:15-14:32 reminds of the following quote.

quote:

"Music is a creative art - twice creative! The composer creates his composition in the first place. But the artist himself must be creative in his interpretation. He must add something of himself to the performance. Something which springs not so much from a facile agility of fingers but from the very soul of man."

Btw, the man is 45 years old and looks like a 17 year old kid. In Andalucia they call him "El Niño".

Who's that quote attributed to?

The interviewees that I've watched/listened to, John and Grisha, are great, really interesting and inspiring. Maybe I'm the only one not so keen on the interviewer...?

I think he has the perfect audio book narration voice. For an interviewer, Maybe comes off a little too rigid, formal, inflated??

When I first came across him on YT I thought he was really quite different to most youtubers. He has his own style and affectations, and will freely admit I thought he was a bit stiff in his delivery. But I really like him, and his particular way of talking, teaching, and playing. He's got style, and he seems very comfortable with it. I dig that. I certainly don't perceive him as self inflated or anything.

We are all different in our own ways, some more than others. I always try to celebrate that.

Strikes me as just a polite middle class Englishman putting on his formal manners. Maybe he would loosen up a little upon closer acquaintance--if he came to trust you.

I wonder if he's a member here who just doesn't post anymore. Or perhaps Devilhand is his sock puppet

Regardless, I think these are some of the best musician interviews I've seen, I have learned loads from them, and this is because of Samuels' intellect and empathy for the audience. I highly recommend watching all of them and not restricting oneself to the flamenco guitar episodes.

Amen.

Listened to his interview with Kai, and he came off less serious / and or warmed up to his style :)
