This week's edition of Classical Guitar Alive! features a tribute to the internationally-renowned and beloved virtuoso French guitarist-composer Roland Dyens (1955- Oct. 29, 2016), and includes excerpts from a 1998 interview, in which he speaks about his compositions and present-day rarity of the performer-composer, and also features a live concert performance at Stetson University, as well as recordings of his original compositions and arrangements, both by himself and other performers.

Special thanks to Pepe & Carissa Romero, and my friends at KMFA radio and Austin Classical Guitar for their kind help with this week's interview.


Classical Guitar Alive! welcomes new stations: South Carolina Public Radio! Nationally-distributed since 1997, Classical Guitar Alive is now broadcast each week on over 250 stations across the US and internationally.
