Video Pick of the Week: Pepe Romero Plays Tárrega’s ‘Mazurka’

It’s always rewarding to spend a few minutes listening to Pepe Romero. Romero playing Tárrega? I call that a win-win! But, frankly, what grabbed me most about this video is the astonishingly beautiful guitar Maestro Romero is plucking so tenderly: An 1894 instrument apparently built by one of the sons of renowned Spanish cabinet maker Melchor Moya; perhaps by the son who was thought to have been a guitar-making pupil of Antonio de Torres.

In the video below, Pepe Romero talks about the Moya family and the instrument with Guitar Salon International president David Collett.  –Blair Jackson
