Excellent release by the italian guitar Duo Lumen performing the Rosarivm-cycle by the fairly unknown czech composer Jan Novák (1921-1984).
Contemporary classical music for guitar without any folk references (especially to spanish or latin american music) is pretty hard to find. Here’s a very fine example of a well structured, complex, yet accessible modern music for guitar that points in a specific non-folkish direction (not that I wouldn’t like that).
In my humble opinion, this is a major release in the well hidden cc classical music scene!
Don’t miss this, if you’re into classical guitar and/or contemporary music.
The cycle has been released as free download a couple of weeks ago on the excellent italian netlabel Parafonica.
