Christopher Norton – The Art of the Guitar

7.99

The Art of the Guitar is a set of four linked pieces, written at the request of John Couch, began with the second piece, which contains material that is developed and extended in various ways throughout the entire set. The title of the set suggests that the music could be used to accompany film of an artist at work, with the lighter guitar textures (pizzicato, staccato, soft fleet passages etc.) perhaps representing pencil sketches and line drawings, and the chunky chords and louder passages representing more active use of paint.
