a new collection of books for guitarists from the pen of Christopher Norton, composer of the /microjazz/ series

*Christopher Norton’s */*Connections for guitar*/ <…>
Christopher Norton’s distinctive contributions to the repertoire successfully bridge the gap between traditional literature and music in contemporary popular styles. The pieces in /Connections for guitar book 1/ (and it’s companion /book 2/) cover a wide range of styles and present many of the same challenges found in more traditional repertoire – tonal beauty, balance between melody and accompaniment, natural movement and phrasing. More rhythmically oriented pieces require coordination, a deep-seated sense of pulse, and awareness of stylistic touches and accentuations. All pieces benefit from a strong connection to mood, movement, or image. Pieces from /book 2/ are listed in the Trinity College London classical guitar syllabus.
Also available now: /*Connections for guitar duo* <…>/ with downloadable play-along audio tracks at practice and performance tempo recorded by New Zealand guitarist John Couch. Enjoy the duet experience even if you can’t meet up to play! Follow this link <…> to listen to audio samples.

/Tristorosa/, a title derived by combining the Portuguese words for “sad” and “rose”, was written by Heitor Villa-Lobos in 1910 when he was 23 years of age under the name of Epaminondas Villaba Filho. This pseudonym had also been previously used by his father, Raúl, a writer and amateur cellist. It is one of Heitor’s earliest compositions and the style of the waltz is typical of those of the period.
Conceived as trios and originally penned for basset horn, a kind of tenor clarinet with a darker mystical tone, Mozart’s five five-movement Divertimenti K. 439b fit very nicely on the warm, romantic sounding modern concert guitar. Classical guitar, capable of both melodic and contrapuntal distinctions, and itself a tenor among the string instruments, is a natural for these pieces.
A most welcome addition to the guitar duo repertoire.
