Michael Nicolella

Repertoire
iTunes

 

Classical guitarist Michael Nicolella poured out a few thousand of the most difficult notes in the repertoire. Easy as opening a valve. No spills, no clicks, no buzzes, no muffles. No sweat. His articulation was so clear that each note and rhythm, phrase and breath between phrases had its distinct life and edge. He never compromised tempo to enhance articulation, and he didn't fuss over his fine detail. It was more like he allowed the details to fall into place ... incredible speed ... objectively intense ...acute, lucid, moment by moment awareness of what the music is.
