New publication "There Were Stars"

Post by andyjimwilliams » Wed May 01, 2019 5:07 pm

I am happy to say another of my pieces was published yesterday by Bergmann Edition. The tremolo study "There Were Stars" is now available in a beautiful edition, very elegant on the page, and including a shorthand notation version (tremolo written in full takes such a lot of room on the page: the shorthand saves you turning over the pages).

You can find the piece at ... were-stars

Here is the publisher's blurb:

"There are only a handful of standard tremolo pieces in the regular classical repertoire – Tarrega’s “Recuerdos de la Alhambra”; Barrios’s “Una Limosnita Por Amor de Dios” and “Un Sueño en la Floresta”; Sainz de la Maza’s “Campanas del Alba”; Regondi’s “Reverie”….a guitarist spends a thousand hours perfecting the technique, but has only a few concert pieces to choose from.
This extended tremolo piece “There Were Stars” will challenge the most advanced player, and provides a fine canvas for expressive interpretation. It has a clear, pure melody in the tremolo. The ‘thumb’ part is not a simple arpeggio accompaniment, but has its own satisfying melodic passages that weave around the tremolo part and complement its harmonic movement.
The composer plays his own interpretation at -

but would be the first to say that it needs the skills of a concert guitarist to bring out its full potential."

Thanks for having a look at this - I do hope someone of a good enough standard will record a version to do it justice.
