Young virtuosa Tina S lays down a wonderful cover of the Dr. Viossy guitar arrangement of the third movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata (Piano Sonata No. 14, Op. 27, No.2).
This is, of course, the “presto agitato” third movement of the Moonlight Sonata. (Beethoven called the sonata “Sonata quasi una fantasia” – sonata, almost a fantasy. The term “Moonlight” wasn’t applied until after Beethoven’s death and referred to the first movement.)
I have been hoping that Tina would tackle this piece, and I’m glad she did!
Metallica to Satie. (That’s the way I operate…always have.)
Tina is building an interesting (and highly popular) cover oeuvre while mastering a wide variety of essential guitar skills. This one displays her aggressive and powerful playing and some really formidable lyrical skills. These lyrical skills are one of the foundations of masterful playing, and I am pleased to hear them here is such clear form and am once again very impressed with this wonderful girl (16 y.o.) whose determination and trajectory appear to be relentless! Nice, Tina!
