Monday Motivation: Brand-Spanking-New Edition

“Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”
-Robert Frost

Today we feature a newly composed piece from Angelo Gilardino for string quartet and guitar. Very interesting piece with some intense moments. By far the most interesting thing, in my opinion, is that we get to watch/listen to this world premiere performance a week after it was given. Amazing stuff.

    Interesting composition. I am wondering if the guitar has a microphone? There appears to be something positioned right near the bottom lower bout.

      I didn’t notice that before. The guitar could have a microphone, but it doesn’t sound like it on the video.

    Yes, the sound is really quite excellent. But it sure looks like a mic there. It would be interesting to find out what kind of sound system the guitarist is using. Whatever it is, it works very well.
