Barrientos-Bomba Pa' Yo!

Barrientos-Bomba Pa' Yo!

$5.95

The composer says: Folklorists have determined that the quintessential national Honduran dance is the Xique. The Xique (or Sique) is a very simple popular peasant couple dance with a definite European influence and tempo of a fast waltz. Though some of these dances are strictly for the salon, the majority of Honduran folkloric dances are of indigenous roots and have many elements that tie it to the Creole imitations of European musical styles. The onomatopoeic name of the dance, Xique, i…

Bogdanovich - Shuvi, Shuvi Hashulamit

Bogdanovich - Shuvi, Shuvi Hashulamit

$8.95

The composer says: A substantial part of my music is based on free-flowing, melismatic vocal polyphony; I do not know where this language exactly comes from, but it has developed through the years into a very concrete musical world. My rendition of Shuvi, Shuvi Hashulamite from Solomon’s Canticle of Canticles certainly partakes of that world. Ever since I first read this extraordinary poetry, I’ve been struck by its intrinsic beauty and passion. Allegorical interpretations and cant…

Chobanian Souvenir

Chobanian Souvenir

$15.95

Loris O. Chobanian Souvenir Homenaje a Andrés Segovia.

Delpriora - Pocket Sonata

Delpriora - Pocket Sonata

$8.95

The composer says: My Pocket Sonata was written for Brazilian guitarist Paulo Martelli to perform on his New York debut recital and functioned on this program as the requisite “world premiere” written by a living composer. Written just behind and right after my 50 minute Sonata no. 3, this much shorter Sonata was conceived to fit in a traditional guitar concert and, if guitarists have a muse in charge of programming, to fit comfortably in her pocket!…

Delpriora Tango Caffé Carciofo

Delpriora Tango Caffé Carciofo

$8.95

The composer says: Some time ago, while I was playing guitar at a cafe in Brooklyn, New York, there was a regular patron: an unusual woman of uncertain age who would dine there each week. She came at the same time, sat at the same table and she usually wore a fanciful hat during the entire course of her meal. That hat recalled to me the shape of an artichoke. This woman was an ardent fan of tango music and she would often interrupt my performance of the usual standard classic guitar music w…

Delpriora-Ten Short Studies in Kaleidoscope

Delpriora-Ten Short Studies in Kaleidoscope

$7.95

The composer says: The title of the “10 studies in Kaleidoscope” refers to the wide variety of styles and various techniques contained therein. Like a rotation of the kaleidoscope, with each turn of the page the guitarist will encounter something different to entertain, amuse and consider. These studies were written not only for the student in need of fresh material that deals with traditional technical and musical problems but also for the diversion of more advanced players, who c…

Fetler Folia Lirica

Fetler Folia Lirica

$4.95

The composer says: If the Folia Lirica seems to be a throwback to earlier historic periods, my intention was clearly to tap the rich resources of a long-time tradition, and by doing so to search for ways to make it part of a viable personal expression. In short, the old gives rise to the new. The very opening is a broad defining statement of the principal idea combined with free flowing rhapsodic passages setting the mood of the Introduction. This is continued with a few more statements and pa…

Hall - Influences, 21 Intermediate Etudes

Hall - Influences, 21 Intermediate Etudes

$8.95

John Hall specializes in the study and performance of classical and jazz music. The etudes in this collection were composed with these two styles in mind; combining the harmonic characteristics of jazz with the classical concepts of voice-leading and counterpoint. They are meant to serve as transitional material between the studies of Carcassi/Sor and the etudes of Villa-Lobos.
