Narciso Yepes was an extraordinarily well-trained, well-informed, and well-read performer, which was unusual in the musical world during his time. The fluidity of his scales on the guitar and the legato he maintained were of another level. 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? Atypical director - Alejandro Rius Galindo - traces the answer to this question in his swansong.
