Clash of the titans!

My colleague and friend Ian Cooper had the great fortune recently to perform in San Francisco with classical guitar legend George Sakellariou.

Ian Cooper (violin) and George Sakellariou (guitar).

Here is George playing Bach's organ Toccatta in D minor:

George Sakellariou began playing the guitar at an early age in Athens, Greece. His first teacher was his brother, a talented composer of popular music. Sakellariou received his formal training from the Conservatory of Music in Athens. After graduating with honors, he was invited to further his studies with the renowned guitarist Segovia when the great master heard him play.
