This list was crafted by a gifted young guitarist from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, as I asked for some insight into the incredible Paraguayan guitarist Agustin Barrios.
Here is the lovely Ana Vidovic performing “La Catedral” from Agustin Barrios:
- Preludio Saudade.
- Andante Religioso.
- Allegro Solemne.
