Video Pick of the Week: Tatyana Ryzhkova Plays Mauro Giuliani’s ‘Sonata in C Major Op. 15’

Belarusian guitarist Tatyana Ryzhkova has been a top player in Europe for a number of years, popular on the festival circuit—and worldwide through her numerous YouTube videos. She’s a wonderful player, as this spirited version of a sonata written in 1812 by Mauro Giuliani (1781–1829) shows. An added treat is that the piece is played on a restored 1916 Hermann Hauser I guitar! Tatyana’s most recent CD is called Dreams of a Russian Summer.
