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!
Tina plays a custom Vigier Excalibur Custom guitar.
During his Fleetwood Mac tenure. Blues. Poor sound, but it kinda works here, imo.
Here is “For Your Love” by its writer.
Another brilliantly played cover by 16 year old Tina S.
Please stay away if you are going to say, “Lots of people can play this.” 🙂 Those “lots of people” can’t play it at this level and quality of personal distinction. Isn’t the point crucial? Quality is crucial. In fact, Tina’s level of playing and trajectory of development are somewhat like:
This can be heard by perceptive listeners through whatever styles she is playing or the level of musical depth and complexity of particular pieces.
Exciting, brilliant, top-level cover, Tina!
I have posted many of Tina’s videos (with comments) on this site, but be sure to visit her YouTube site, too. She has posted a variety of covers.
