Default Xavier Jara plays Scarlatti: 2 Sonatas

His guitar's a little clangy for my taste, but I think this kid could be going places:

I think you have to take recitals like this with a grain of salt as far as how the instrument sounds. It's a compressed digital recording whin who knows what kind of mics and techniques used. Instead if you focus on the kids technique and feel then yeah I would agree, he's good.

BTW at 3:53 (there abouts) I have never seen the thumb used like that! Interesting.

https://www.xavierjara.com/videos. Third one down.

This one shows a little more tonal breadth.

Nice playing.
