Album Notes
Joseph Pecoraro’s 2009 release ‘Perennials’ features world-premier recordings from composers as diverse as the country from which they hail. These new American gems demonstrate the vast spectrum of possibilities for emotion, texture, and style found in solo guitar repertoire today. They range from the ingeniously devised and obscurely organized work by Charles Wuorinen, ‘Hexadactyl’, to the folk-inspired simplicity and charm of David Crittenden’s set, ‘Perennials’. Jose Lezcano’s neo-romantic language and impeccable form support an entrancing recollection of the painter’s haunting and macabre imagery in his ‘Three Goya Portraits’. In Daniel Asia’s ‘Songs of Transcendence’ the setting of three Jewish Hymns explore the possibilities for variation on the guitar while remaining true to the compelling spiritual character of each melody. The centerpiece of the disc may be Sebastian Currier’s structural and technical tour de force, ‘Assertions/Reflections’, a work which explores the guitar’s entire range of sound and expressivity while remaining well-balanced and accessible. Finally, two new sets by young guitarist-composers Carlos Rafael Rivera and Andrew Zohn display great lyrical charm and instrumental invention. The recording is close-miked but still warm and resonant, capturing the subtle shading, color and dynamic range which give the classical guitar its timeless appeal.
