The first six of the twelve Studies (PRIM 99 104) by Allan (Andrew) Willcocks (1869-1956) already display a completely new treatment of the guitar. Impressionistic tonal structures which up until this point had only been experienced in piano music have been harmoniously interwoven with the idiomatic characteristics of plucked instruments in the guitar part.

Willcocks composed his 12 Miniature Preludes in a veritable frenzy of inspiration (exactly four years after the first volume of studies). In contrast to the Studies, these pieces bear no dedication, are shorter in length, are composed throughout in a singing style and present fewer technical challenges to the performer than the Studies. The Preludes all have titles as is the case with the Studies but these titles allude without exception to specific contemporary paintings or poems.

  • Appassionata

    Appassionata, Ronaldo Miranda's first solo guitar work, was composed in 1984 but had to wait until 1996 for its premiere. The title, like those of several other works by Miranda, is borrowed from the historical repertoire, but there is no connection to Beethoven's sonata; it rather suggests the character, alternately pugnacious and abandoned, of...
