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!
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.
Tina S is back with another dazzling cover. In my opinion, this may be her best. I may have said it regarding a few of her other covers (which I have posted here), but it only underscores that this fabulous young guitarist is on a trajectory of constant learning and improvement…quite old school. 🙂
I think of Tina as a baroque girl because she excels in baroquish technique and spirit. Also, her articulate and deep musicality is second to none. It raises her covers above the “showoff” school, which constitutes many, if not most, YouTube covers.
As usual, Tina covers with power, skill, and an essential “Tinaness”. This one reaches new heights.
