Watch Ricardo Gallen Record Bach
Stumbled upon a great video yesterday of Norbert Kraft, the producer (and guitarist) behind the Naxos guitar recordings, and Ricardo Gallen in Toronto recording a new Bach CD. Gallen also has a Guitar Recital CD out.
The video was done by a Toronto film company, Wandering Eye Productions. Most of the sound was recorded right through the Naxos recording gear. Worth a Listen!

And Kraft’s suggestions seem to me to be somewhat lacking in depth… simply calling things out of his little recording room…

Very good! 🙂
Let’s really hope he improves in his interpretations of Bogdanović’s Balkan Miniatures.
He’s planning a music with balkan music, but if he doesn’t watch out, it might end up being “just another guitar CD”, which would be a pitty.
