CONCERTO FOR GUITAR  (Wind Ensemble or Chamber Orchestra) Richard J. Smoot
"It's baroque brevity belies the richness of the music which has a cool oriental palette of Japanese scales and motifs giving the piece a broad vision that is often evocative. As a composer / guitarist, Smoot knows the subtle modulations that suit his instrument and there are hints of Villa-Lobos in some of the thematic treatments. The third movement, with its pounding march-like theme is a fitting conclusion to a compact and lively concerto." Tim Panting, Classical Guitar magazine

Commissioned by Lynn Harting-Ware, this concerto draws inspiration from Spanish folk songs of diverse origin.  The first movement uses two Judeo-Spanish melodies of the Morenos, while the second movement combines an original passacaglia theme with an old Puerto Rican folk song.  The third movement presents a corrido melody from Northern Mexico.  All three movements feature cadenzas. 1111-1110-Timp., 2 Perc., Solo Gtr, & Strings.  NE0550 Rental Fee $199.00
