May 29 is Isaac Albéniz’s birthday (he was born in 1860), so we honor him with our favorite guitar-duo version of Asturias, by the exceptional Kupiński Guitar Duo, Ewa Jablczynska and Dariusz Kupinski. This exciting version really captures so much of the power and sophistication of the piano original—that’s part of the magic of two guitars. Check it out! —Blair Jackson
And here’s a link to another sensational Kupinski Guitar Duo performance: Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
