Program Notes for the SERENADE CD

"Sound, as it occurs in nature and sound as music has captivated man throughout time. Man has learned to use sound vibrations to explore the depth of the sea (sonar) and has also used the vibrating quartz in our precise modern electronic timing devices. But modern man has yet torealize the healing power of music".

 The music on this album includes the first recording of these guitar compositions by Cuban composer Eduardo Mart°n. Here, Cuban Jazz guitarist Jorge Chicoy improvises over the "Easy Pieces". The "Easy Pieces" or Guitar Etudes can be considered a link between the classical and popular guitar styles. These pieces contain very interesting melodies and effective technique study formulas. The "Easy Pieces" are followed with a solo by J. Chicoy playing a piece by french composer Django Reinhardt.

The second part of the recording continues with the "Songs of the Calendar" also by E. Mart°n.

The last portion of the program includes original compositions for flute and guitar by Raymond Lohengrin. The printed scores of these works are available directly from Guitar Works.
