Morning Concert:
Guitarissimo, Part One: Solo Guitar Music

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 127 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

From a program originally recorded on September 1, 1992, guitar virtuoso David Tanenbaum joins Charles Amirkhanian for a presentation of contemporary solo guitar music, much of which extends the language of the instrument. Tanenbaum briefly discusses his own career and current projects before dipping into his extensive private collection of guitar music. Works heard include Robert Sierra’s “Toccata y Lamento,” Tristan Murail’s “Tellur,” and a rare recordings of “Ko-tha: Three Dances of Shiva” by Giacinto Scelsi, all performed by a variety of young, up and coming guitarists. The program continues with the Serbian guitarist Dušan Bogdanović performing his own “Introduction & Passacaglia for the Golden Flower,” Seth Josel’s recording of the lengthy work “Arien IV” by Sidney Corbett, and R. Murray Schafer’s “Le Cri de Merlin” a work in six movements, the last of which calls upon the performer to record local birdsongs to be heard in the background. This wonderful program of contemporary classical guitar music concludes with Lou Harrison’s composition “Avalokiteshvara” arranged for guitar and percussion ensemble by it’s soloist, David Tanenbaum.
