I absolutely love this performance, and am happily sharing it.
What a fantastic guitar, played extraordinarily well by an incredibly talented artist!

That's a Romance guitar right? I agree, great performance. Do you think that's a custom guitar support or are they on the market?
Thanks again for posting. She is very talented. I watch her in the morning at breakfast from Suc guitars and my wife gets jealous...she's beautiful and talented.

Romantic guitar, correct, a copy since its looks beautifully new, and at a guess a French type.
But yes this is a magnificent performance, full of interesting detail and characterisation; there's a slightly excessive rallentando in the middle somewhere but she makes lots of clear and confident decisions about shaping the ideas without (apart from that rall.) going OTT.

Fine performance! Isn't this version BWV 1000, not 1001? I have never heard 1:33 to 1:40 played this way.... quite a departure from what I am used to hearing.

She states in the description that it's a Stauffer copy, by Jan Tulacek.

I think you are indeed correct that this is BWV 1000.

It's difficult not to be jealous really! I wish I could play this well...

Also thank you for the criticism of the rallentando. It's not something I would necessarily notice, and this gives a me reference for my own critique/listening and reading session with my printed score (in hopes of someday being able to play this through.)

I have heir Regondi recording running in the background...
She studies with Prof Müller-Perring at the prestigous university in Weimar. Looking forward to heir concert on November 30th here in Hamburg. Pretty romantic interpretation of the BWV 1000, but brilliant...

This has always been one of my top 2 or 3 favorite pieces in the genre - my first classical guitar album was a Julian Bream double album that had this as the second piece and I was sold on the first listen. Have never taken the time to put in the work to learn it. :(
