Classical Guitar Sites
Liona Boyd - The fabulous Canadian guitarist with powerful, beautiful sound, great use of color (a real rarity these days) and most important, very musical and virtuosic playing. She has done much good for the classical guitar by performing with such "pop" icons as Gordon Lightfoot and Tracy Chapman thereby introducing newer and larger audiences to the instrument. Enjoy her website. Buy her CDs.
and Liza - A truly remarkable husband-wife duo. They also are
distinguished solo guitarists in their own rights. Not only are they
fine technicians but their styles are, for the most part,
"throwbacks" to an earlier era of "romantic"
playing with an emphasis on the subtle and expressive use of tone
color, vibrato, rubato etc. most recently associated with such great
past artists as Segovia and Micha Elman. Visit their website and buy
their recordings. You won’t regret that you did.
