Media Type : DVDMusical Genre : ClassicInternationally renowned classical guitarist David Leisner plays a live concert program with some pieces that are well-known and others that may be new to guitarists. One of the discoveries is the Sonata in b minor by Wenzeslaus Matiegka (1773-1830), an unduly neglected composer that Leisner calls the Beethoven of the guitar. It´s a great addition to the guitar repertoire. Another discovery is Leisner´s own Nel Mezzo: Sonata, which Soundboard magazine called an original and profoundly personal work...powerful, angry and moving music. Now played quite a bit, the music of Johann Kaspar Mertz (1806-1856) was virtually unknown when Leisner recorded and published some of his music almost 30 years ago. Here, two of Mertz´s pieces display the passionate Romanticism of this music. The classics include the sublime Prelude, Fugue and Allegro by J. S. Bach, two delightful Rags by Scott Joplin in Leisner´s arrangements, and a dazzling encore of Etude No. 12 by Villa-Lobos. Leisner introduces each piece informally and is interviewed during intermission by Andrew Dickenson. The interview covers a number of topics in depth, including some of Leisner´s secrets about easing physical tensions while playing the guitar, and his thoughts about the music he´s playing and about composition.
