Martha Masters plays Scarlatti [Monday Motivation]
One of the coolest things happening in the guitar world today is the use of online video. A week ago, Lynn McGrath gave a concert that was streamed live. This video from Martha Masters is from a concert given on April 29th. She plays a Sonata (K. 208) by Scarlatti.
I hope we see more of this: very recent videos and artists updating their youtube channels more frequently. It certainly makes putting together Monday Motivation posts easier.
Very good. Nice young guitarrist. Bravo!!

Some recommendations on Scarlatti:
There exists a fantastic version of Leo Brouwer playing the K208 Scarlatti:
listen in particular to the great ornamentation he utilizes from 0:53 onwards
Wow Brouwer is such a fantastic musician. His ornamentation and playing is thoroughly in baroque style.
He’s an expert on baroque interpretation
