Album Notes
This 'mini' album has been recorded in several locations: some tracks have been recorded in La Flame studios in Montreal, some in the Loyola Chapel in Montreal, and some in private studios in Toronto, Canada. This is all music that I've studied and continue to study as I always discover new inspiring ways to interpret and to imagine. The Barrios pieces are so dear to me that I am actually in the process of recording a complete Barrios album, which I am so excited and looking forward to complete.
Napoléon Coste was a French guitarist composer who wrote numerous works for guitar, many of them highly virtuosic. This Fantaisie Dramatique - also subtitled "Le Départ" - evokes the march of the French army into Paris after their siege of Sebastopol on December 29th, 1855.
Bach wrote beautiful solo music for many instruments, some of it music that continues to be a hit till this day! His prelude from the Cello Suite No.1 certainly falls into this category. This is a beautiful adaptation to guitar by Dr. Jeffrey McFadden.
"Hommage to the Brazilian Indians" is the fourth prelude in a set of five preludes by Heitor Villa-Lobos, dedicated to his wife, Mindinha. The main theme is based on the call and response between native Indians in South America and the echo created as they do so. I found this piece of information very inspiring while learning this prelude.
Until today, we are not entirely certain who composed "Spanish Romance". It is a well known, traditional Spanish tune that possesses a simple but effective melody. I find immense pleasure playing this piece, and I usually like to play it as an encore in my recitals.
