Inspiration: Listening to Kevin Gallagher

For this month’s bit of inspiration we’ll be taking a listen to one of our new CGC Academy Faculty members, Kevin Gallagher, playing a beloved piece from the classical guitar repertoire (even though it was originally penned for the harpsichord), “Les Barricades Mystérieuses” by Francois Couperin. Kevin is playing on a lovely 1941 Hauser guitar.

Kevin Gallagher was the first prize winner of the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America competition in 1993 and went on to win many other important competitions after that. Kevin teaches at his private studio in New York City and offers live webcam lessons. Find out more about Kevin here.

    One of my all time favourite pieces, beautifully played. Great to hear that he’s joined the CGCA Faculty.

    Beautiful Kevin. My teacher back in 1980 the late Greg Coleman made a beautiful recording of this on his album Sarabande of the Distance. I’ve loved it ever since. Started to learn it but have put it aside for now for a summer project. I look forward to seeing a tutorial and suggested fingering!
