Product details

Songs of Death & Guitars are Flamenco pieces in character if not in form.
The theme of the ultimate truth of death is a feature of this music which arose from the oppression of Spanish gypsies in Andalusia. The three voices of soprano, cello and guitar all aim to explore the ironic beauty that is the chiascuro-like reality of living and dying; but which is light and which is dark?
This is a demanding work for ensemble which uses contemporary and flamenco music practices.
