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, “Elvira Maria” and the 3-movement Sonata “Banc d’Arguin” are strictly guitar solos, while “Richi” is a solo accompanied by light percussion. “Kilian’s Mountain” is a reduced score of an extended duet with a pianist, and “Desierto” and “Virgianna” 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 Barber’s Compositions for Classical Guitar are written in standard notation only, with online access to stellar solo and ensemble recordings.
