Album Notes
All the tracks here are favourites of mine. Some I have played for over 20 years.
For years, I thought that the Choros was by Villa-Lobos but its not. The style and structure are similar but he was celebrating a native Brazilian art form so there are many out there I guess. This Choros is sassy and fun, catchy too, I'll bet you find yourself humming it.
The Pavane by Luis de Milan is a slow renaissance dance, a “walking” dance. It builds up lots of delicately overlapping lines, showing off the guitars ability to follow individual voices through a texture.
Lagrima, which means tear, is a jewel of romantic guitar. The repeated figure at the beginning suggests the sobs between tears.
Prelude No 4 is the most striking of Villa-Lobos’ preludes with its ues of harmonics.
Torroba’s Sonatina always struck me as a little jewel. Intensely Spanish and guitaristic but perfect sonata form and upbeat to boot!
My favourite sandwich was a little thing I wrote after a bit of banter with Rob Chappers. He described the prefect sandwich of bread, butter, cheese and a hint of mustard then said of my latest composition ,”so musically you’ve produced a mustard sandwich on mustard bread with a hint of cheese!” So here is my response, just to prove I can do diatonic stuff with relish.
