Video Pick of the Week: Thomas Viloteau Plays His Engaging Piece ‘Irréverénte’

The exceptional French guitarist Thomas Viloteau is a reliable interpreter of just about any style of classical guitar you could name, and is also a fine composer, as he shows with this piece, Irrévérente (which translates to English exactly as you would expect). It conveys a wonderful sense of motion in parts, as well as some interesting chordal moments; all in all; it’s quite evocative and slightly enigmatic. Which is another reason he is among my favorite players! —Blair Jackson
