Guitar Concerto

composer

 
Last year I was introduced via social media to Argentinian guitarist Sergio Puccini. He asked whether I had written anything for classical guitar and the only piece I had to present was a one-minute sketch written several years earlier. Upon hearing it he asked if it could be expanded and so the work matured into a three movement guitar concerto. Initially it was conceived as a work for two guitars and orchestra but I then altered the arrangement changing the second guitar part into a harp part which is performed here by harpist Oliver Wass. Sergio recorded the solo part remotely in Rosario, Argentina.
