From the evocation of sentiment and nostalgia in Morelâs compositions, the biting dissonances in Carlevaroâs pieces, the driven momentum within Brouwerâs Sonata, to the seductive bossa nova swing of Bellinatiâs study, in this Cd we find an appealing array of atmospheres inspired by the multiple musical idioms of Latin America.
Milonga Oriental (1994) Abel Carlevaro (1918-2001)
The milonga is a song genre shared by Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, hence the title âOrientalâ (eastern) to denote the geographical location of Uruguay within this sphere. A solo guitar version exists in the folk tradition of the cowboys of this vast region, which lends authenticity to this sophisticated vignette by one of the most important guitarists of the XXth Century. Although cast in traditional milonga rhythm, this piece contains light touches of modernism in its harmonies, all the while staying faithful to the melancholic tinge characteristic of the genre.
Introducción y Capricho (1997)
In this piece Carlevaro appears--in true Post-modern spirit-- to be inspired by the Five Bagatelles of British composer William Walton, a famous composition in the guitar repertoire. The use of repeated notes, shifting irregular meters, percussive effects and chords based on quartal harmony--often in the same voicings as in Waltonâs work-- are the salient features in common. Yet the piece is also infused with a strong Latin-American character in its rhythmic structure. The Introducción utilizes a meter of five beats that is very modernist in its feel, while the Capricho is heavily colored with syncopation (displaced accents common to Latin music) and in its middle section reflects the influence of the shortened clave (123,123,12) that is also occurs in the milonga and the tango.
Little Serenade (2003) Jorge Morel (b.1931)
Jorge Morel is a virtuoso guitarist who has written many works for his chosen instrument, and is a living legend amongst guitarists. The sampling of recent pieces in this recording reflects his interest in Latin music from all traditions, not just his native Argentina. The âlaid backâ feeling of Little Serenade derives more from a Latin ballad than from a bolero. Although the initial phrase brings to mind the rhythm of the maracas that accompanied strolling musicians with their guitars and their love songs, the emotional crescendo typical of those songs is here tamed to a more gentle expression that leaves the door open to the next piece by its final unresolved chord.
Homage to Latin Music: Salsa (1999)
Before settling in the U.S. Morel lived in Puerto Rico for a time and became acquainted with the popular music called Salsa, which is derivate of the Cuban âsonâ. In this piece he successfully conveys salsa musicâs sense of motion by utilizing a syncopated bass line and the rhythmic device called âclaveâ. The name both for a musical instrument, two wooden sticks, and for a rhythmic pattern, the âclave" is the background code or time line of Afro-Cuban origin that serves as the guide for the melodies and the accents. Although Morel does not quote directly any Salsa song, there are short riffs that suggest famous tunes. Spicy dissonant chords and intervals also reveal Modernist musical influences.
Canción del recuerdo (2004)
In this tender composition Morel, now a septuagenarian, muses melodically about the past in ever yearning sequences. Morelâs compositions have mostly been inspired by popular rhythms and genres from the southern end of the continent, yet here he displays a poignant lyricism devoid of any specific allusion to folk idioms and charged with emotional depth. I am honored by the dedication of this beautiful piece and grateful for his friendship.
Sonata (1990) Leo Brouwer (b.1939)
This forceful composition by an artist whose place in the history of the guitar has been assured by many groundbreaking works, was written for the great British guitarist Julian Bream. In the first movement, Fandangos y Boleros
Brouwer quotes these rhythmic formulas from early Spanish music in a context that also utilizes the perspective of the XXth century style labeled Minimalism. Beethoven finds his way into Brouwerâs vision of an imaginary world in a short quote from the Pastoral Symphony in the coda.
The second movement, Sarabanda de Scriabin, which is inspired by an archaic form, uses the slow tempo of this baroque dance in company with a reference to a dissonant chord, presumed to have mystical connotations, devised by the Russian pianist-composer Alexander Scriabin.
In the final âLa Toccata de Pasquiniâ, the composer strives for the momentum of a toccata, or fast movement, with which great harpsichord composers-performers of the Baroque era such as Pasquini dazzled their audiences. The use of jarring âpizzicati-Bartokâ, or snapping strings, is a modernist addition to the sonorities that can be drawn from traditional instruments.
This work is a true Post-modern statement in the clever juxtaposition of genres, quotes, modernistic sounds and Minimalist tendencies, and to top it all, a Cuban sensibility in the astute manipulation of rhythm.
Brisa do oceano from Estudos Litorâneos Paulo Bellinati (b.1950)
Bellinati is recognized as one of Brazilâs premier contemporary guitarists and composers for the instrument. This piece, âOcean Breezeâ is the first in a set of three arpeggio âstudies from near the seaâ that are inspired by the sounds of nature. A bossa nova pulse whose rhythmic pattern is also implied in the arpeggio structure supports its melodic phrasing. The harmonic language also suggests Brazilâs popular music, or MPB, with its stylish jazz-inflected chord progressions. The sweeping arpeggios cover the range of the guitarâs register and conjure the ebb and flow of the tides and the soothing breeze alluded to by the mellifluous title.
