Narciso Yepes. A Heart of Ten Strings

(Narciso Yepes, Un corazón de diez cuerdas)
Alejandro Rius Galindo | Documentary

2018 | 62 minutes | Spain

Recovering the memory of the genius Narciso Yepes, not only as a great guitar player but as an extraordinary man.

Synopsis

Guitarist Narciso Yepes was one of the greatest musicians that Spain gave to the world. He was an extraordinarily well-trained, well-informed, and well-read performer, which was unusual in the musical world during his time. So unique was the legend’s energetic pulse and electrifying vibrato that even seasoned artists could not reproduce it. How did a young boy, who started playing music using his father’s stick, master the art on his own?

Through this documentary, we discover the very private man through interviews and testimonies: his kindness, his simplicity, and his passion for music out of the ordinary. He never stopped working on his instrument, even during his long and painful illness, always seeking to go further in the technique and exploration of the possibilities of sound.
