The composer says:
Prelude, Chorale and Fugue was commissioned by the Brazilian guitarist Nicolas de Souza Barros. The work features a combination of extended traditional European forms and compositional techniques with a wholly Panamerican atmosphere, from American jazz to the Brazilian Seresta and Choro. The composer owes an important part of this piece’s formal idea to César Franck’s homonymous piano work and his inspiration from the cultural freshness of the American continent. However, its raison d’être has been the intimate and intrinsic relationship between the guitar and the composer’s native Brazil, of which that marvelous instrument has become its most prominent musical voice.
