Cooper, Derek - Fairytale Creatures

Post by CGCristian92 » Thu Jan 03, 2019 7:49 pm

Hey everyone,

My name is Cristian Garcia and i am a classical guitiarist currently based in Los Angeles, but have studied a at the Manhattan School of Music with David Leisner, and with Ignacio Rodes in Alicante, Spain.

I have made it my mission to commission works and i have been lucky to get a few works written for me that i am currently in the process of putting together and hopefully to going to make a recording in the next few years. In the same vein, i am currently working on a program mixing new works and old works.

One of these works has been " Fairytale Creatures" by the friend, Derek Cooper. We wrote these for me a few years ago and i performed a few of them in a live concert ( this one is from April of 2016 i believe) and i finally got the recordings and have posted them on soundcloud. It is a set of 5 works with each being named after a mythical creature. The 3 posted here are : The Imp, The Griffin, and The Unicorn.

Soundcloud playlist link : ... -creatures

I am hoping to get some feedback from you fine folks here at Delcamp ( Particularly David Norton, since he doesnt hold back hahaha)
These are live and are not perfect, but i i am mainly interested in your thoughts.

I can provide the Score as well if there is enough interest!
