October 24, 2007 "Palumbo, Part Premieres"
This week's edition of Classical Guitar Alive! features music from some of of 2005's best new CD
releases, and an interview with Jason Vieaux.
The program begins with Bernardo Pasquini's (1637-1710) harpsichord sonata in d minor, performed by
the Erato Duo, which consists of guitarists Martha Masters and Risa Carlson.
From a live recording made April 7, 2005 at Giusseppe Verdi Hall at the Conservatorio in Milan,
Composer & conductor Massimo Palumbo (b. 1965) leads the United Europe Chamber Orchestra in his
"Emmanuel" concerto for guitar & orchestra, with featured soloist and dedicatee, Emanuele Segre.
Massimo Palumbo's brilliant earlier work, "Fantasia omaggio a Ennio Morricone" for fortepiano and
guitar was featured on a previous edition of Classical Guitar Alive!: "Unknown Masterpieces."
One of Europe's best-selling classical guitarists, Kaare Norge, from Denmark, performs his
transcription of Chopin's "Nocturne" in E major, opus 9, no. 2.
So far, Estonian composer Arvo Part has made more than a dozen versions of his well-known work "
"Fratres." Conductor Victor Pablo Perez leads the Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia in a version for
string orchestra and percussion with guitarist Manuel Barrueco.
Jason Vieaux's 2005 release "Images of Metheny" features his solo guitar arrangements of songs by
jazz guitar composer Pat Metheny. Vieaux discusses the genesis of that project, and of his
meeting Metheny. The program concludes with 3 selections from his Songs in the Form of a Baroque
Suite: "Antonia" (Allemande), "Question and Answer" (Gavotte and Double), and "James"(Gigue).
