This is Ricardo Gallen plays Sor's Grand Sonata Op.22. I think it's in Moscow, it's posted on RG's own channel.
Let's the music and performance speak for itself.

What with those first 3 chords? Really bad choice, IMO, but he got better later. Nice interpretation overall, just didn't like the sort of baroque way of playing it, with those shorter notes or staccato kind of playing in too many phrases.
