The disc is quite impressive and presents a very personal interpretation of my works. Thanos has remarkable technique and a highly sensitive musical intuition.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music of Sergio Assad played by Thanos Mitsalas

Greek guitarist Thanos Mitsalas recently surprised me with this recording of a substantial part of my music written for solo guitar. The disc is quite impressive and presents a very personal interpretation of my works. Thanos has remarkable technique and a highly sensitive musical intuition.

The compositions featured in this recording were written over the course of many years and consequently reflect different phases of my musical life.

Three Divertimentos were written in 1996 for some students I had for a short period of time while teaching at the Conservatoire Royal in Belgium.

Valseana is the second movement of a longer work called Aquarelle and was written around 1984 representing quite well my song writing of that time.

Fantasia Carioca dates from 1994 when I had my phase of motif development and it celebrates the city of Rio de Janeiro, Remembrance and Farewell are also from 1994 and were written for the Japanese movie Natsu No Niwa.

The Sonata was commissioned by the Japanese magazine Gendai Guitar in 1999 and mirrors one of my first attempts in bridging different musical cultures.

3 Greek Letters were written in the year 2000 and although they are not based in Greek traditional music they are my personal homage to the great Greek culture and civilization.

Thanos Mitsalas has lots to say as a skilled guitarist and fine musician. I'm pleased he has chosen my unpretentious solo guitar works as his first recording project.
