This book presents six contemporary guitar works by Irish composers. These works are fairly evenly divided with reference to their position in the composer's output and also to the composers" age: three of the six are early works (Farrell, Bromhead and Fennessy) while the remaining three were produced during the composers more mature years (O'Leary, Sweeney and Bodley); also, three generations of living composers are represented. The six works chosen vary widely in compositional style, approach to writingfor the guitar, and technical requirements, thus presenting a generally good overview of contemporary Irish guitar music. This collection spans the period from 1970 to 2006 and includes "Gemini" by Jerome deBromhead, the first Irish solo concert work for guitar. A short introduction toeach composer and a background to his/her work is included.
