Classically trained jazz guitarist Diego Barber presents five well-developed themes and a 3-movement solo sonata transcribed from his outstanding commercial CD recordings: Calima, One Minute Later, Tales, and The Choice. Two of the tracks, aElvira Mariaa and the 3-movement Sonata aBanc daArguina are strictly guitar solos, while aRichia is a solo accompanied by light percussion. aKilianas Mountaina is a reduced score of an extended duet with a pianist, and aDesiertoa and aVirgiannaa include expert sidemen on saxophone, bass and drums. The music ventures from complex melody-chord textures to hard-swinging grooves, all played with spontaneity and a heightened awareness of time, dynamics, color, technique and tone. Even seasoned guitarists will find these pieces rhythmically and technically challenging, but they provide a roadmap to the recordings, and rare insight to the workings of a unique musical mind. Diego Barberas Compositions for Classical Guitar are written in standard notation only, with online access to stellar solo and ensemble recordings. About Sonata aBanc daArguina a\| Diego Barber is a native of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, just off the northeast coast of Africa; in writing Sonata aBanc daArguin,a the main solo piece in this collection, he was inspired by the major cities, Nouadhibou and Nouakchott, the Banc daArguin National Park, and the desert of the West African country of Mauritania.
