Hot on the heels of the first classical guitar publication release by GMI – Guitar & Music Institute “Italian Theorbo Music” a second classical guitar book has also been created by virtuoso guitarist James Akers and is now available to buy.
The New Works In GMI’s Latest Classical Guitar Book
Scottish Romantic Guitar is a collection of intermediate and advanced pieces for classical guitar by leading composers of the 19th century, inspired by Scotland. While these pieces have previously been available from different sources, they are compiled here for the first time, in corrected editions, in one convenient volume.
Highlights include, Mauro Giuliani’s beautiful settings of six favourite Scottish songs; Fernando Sor’s masterful ‘Variations on Ye Banks and Braes’ and Johan Kaspar Mertz’s dramatic evocation of the landscape of the Outer Hebrides, ‘Fingal’s Cave.’
This collection offers the guitarist a unique source of unfamiliar yet accessible repertoire that is both challenging and rewarding to play and which will appeal to any audience.
