Video Pick of the Week: Julia Trintschuk Plays the Allegro from ‘Sonata Giocosa’ by Joaquín Rodrigo

Here’s a recent video from the fine German guitarist Julia Trintschuk, who regales us with an energetic version of  the “Allegro” movement from Joaquín Rodrigo’s Sonata Giocosa  (1960, dedicated to Catalan guitarist Renata Tarragó, who was the first woman to record Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, in 1958). Among the many prizes 21-year-old Julia has won, is first place honors in this year’s Montenegro International Guitar Festival. —Blair Jackson
