July 17, 2007 "French Composers/Paul Galbraith Interview"
<Listen To Preview> <Listen Online Now>

This week's edition of Classical Guitar Alive! features music by French composers Debussy, Ibert, Bizet, Bozza, and Saint-Saens, plus a 2007 interview with Paul Galbraith.

From a 2007 interview, Grammy-nominated 8-string guitarist Paul Galbraith discusses how his early piano studies shaped his unusual approach to the guitar. His recording of Debussy's Children's Corner Suite is from his latest Delos CD, "French Impressions."

Duozona, the Arizona-based flute & guitar duo of Chuck and Theresa Hulihan, perform Jacques Ibert's Spanish-influenced piece "Paraboles".

Georges Bizet (1838-1875) was also a French composer enamored with Spanish music, as evident from his opera "Carmen." His first and only Symphony was composed at age 17 and was lost for many years and rediscovered in 1935, when it was first performed. The Amsterdam Guitar Trio performs their arrangement.

The program continues with Duozona's recording of Eugene Bozza's (1905-1991) Serenade.

The program concludes with conductor/guitarist/ JoAnn Falletta performing her chamber music arrangement of Camille Saint-Saens' (1835-1921) "Tarantella" for flute, clarinet, and guitar.
