DCD 045 - Boston Guitar Fest

The Boston Guitar Fest is quite a prestigious event. A joint project of Northeastern University and the New England Conservatory, it's a week-long celebration of the guitar and guitar artistry. One of the high points of the Boston Guitar Fest is the juried performance competition.

One of the prizes for that competition is a recording with VGo Recordings. In 2006, there were two co-winners, but lasts year there was one standout performer -- Christina Pérez Madiedo.

This episode of the DCD Classical 'Cast we sample selections from Madiedo's prize recording, as well as revisit tracks from the previous year's co-winners, Steve Lin and Joseph Williams, II.
