Dear Alan,

Thank you very much for your comment.

MARIZAPALOS is a piece that I love has been my inspiration to dedicate myself to the implementation of the baroque guitar, heard long ago with Gerardo Arriaga who later would be my teacher. The guitar that I use in this video was built by Alexander Hopkins, is a copy of a guitar from the school that this Catalan in possession of a private collector. An interesting tool that was found in perfect condition. Of course, without this label, and it is not known nor the date of construction.

Sincerely, Frannz

What a beautifully lyrical sound you get from that guitar! Is it a copy of a Stradivarius?
Whatever the instrument, I love the way you make it sing. Thank you.
