"The Ultimate in Classical Guitar Music"
"Equally appealing are the three highly descriptive pieces that form Peter Ware's 'Forest Scenes', the final section, Woodchuck Blues, being a wonderful, tongue-in-cheek look at a lazy blues." -Fanfare

CHAMA "THE EAGLE AND THE PLUMED SERPENT" (Violin and Guitar or Flute and Guitar) Peter Ware
(Violin and Guitar or Flute and Guitar) Peter Ware
Hear an MP3 excerpt of Peter Ware's Chama from the CD Americas! 
"Its slow unfolding course, in predominantly long violin phrases, has a cobra-like power to hypnotise."   - Allan Clive Jones, Classical Guitar
" of the most compelling things I have heard in years for flute & guitar. . . there is this same free exchange of tensions- moving from the calm to the very tense. Musical ideas are worked out in a very evocative way. Played properly this music will dazzle an audience and thrill the players."
-J. Bent, Soundboard

This evocative work was inspired by the writings of Carlos Castaneda.  In a variation form, it opens and closes with an extensive violin/flute solo of meditative character.  Exotic scales along with portamento convey a primitive, near eastern quality.  It was commissioned with a Consortium Commission Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. 
The work is recorded on the Acoma CD AMERICAS GXD5736. Vln & Gtr AE56X;  Fl. & Gtr AE357  Score & Part $15.98  Click and See reviews.  

DANCE SUITE  (2 Guitars)  Srul Irving Glick

DELICATE BALANCES  (Flute and Guitar)  Stephen Gryc
Referring to the light, fleeting tones and timbres produced by both instruments, this three movement duet opens with a Rhapsody of intense lyricism.  The second movement, entitled Harmonics epitomizes the works delicate nature as flute and guitar explore a single melodic idea.  Closing is the Ostinati, which grows out of an extensive guitar solo and then becomes accompaniment to the flute's longer lines.  Edited and recorded by Richard Provost.  Score & Part  NE0208  $19.98

(Fl. & Gtr) James Lentini
