Work Overview

In my formative years, the guitarists I listened to prolifically were John Williams, Julian Bream, Andres Segovia and Narcisso Yepes. The only time I saw Julian perform live was at the Adelaide Town Hall in 1983. He played the William Walton Bagatelles, which I later learned he had commissioned. Out of the hundreds of guitar performances I have witnessed, it was outstanding. I would have loved to meet the man, because I think we would have connected. Like me, he was a cricket tragic who loved a tipple, and once said he would gladly trade some of his musical talent to be able to bowl a decent "wrong un". I have composed this piece in his memory and I have tried to reflect Walton's rhythmic and harmonic ideas and Bream's use of tone colour.
