Serene and graceful extract from a few minutes into the Legend of Hagoromo. The Legend is a 20 minute Japanese work which begins with atmospheric harmonics depicting the quiet, still air around a lake where 7 heavenly maidens bathe…The excerpt follows on from this.
Fast, furious finale of the 20 minute work by Keigo Fujii. Fiendish to play, it truly is only one guitar being played! The piece is loosely based on an old Japanese mode and the finale culminates in taking the Japanese legend almost into contemporary rock … rhythmic, dynamic, certainly not what one usually associates with classical guitar…
Beautiful, reflective first movement of La Catedral by Barrios. The trick is to make this rather awkward piece, centering around the high positions of the fretboard, sound simple and easy to play!
Barrios La Catedral Allegro Solemne Elegant, fast paced third movement of the Barrios La Catedral.
