mare.lunare concerto.4.jovaluna.&.strings


A great composition for jovaluna is finished now. It is a hommage to Antonio Vivaldi, a modern concert for guitar, in the manner of a barock concert by the great composer Antonio Vivaldi.

The sound and the possibilites of the jovaluna fantastically suit this special composition technique. The jovaluna is like the moon, has a silvery sound, suggests a combination of a guitar and a cembalo.

Please come to the International Guitarfestival Rust 2004, and hear the jovaluna playing mare.lunare performed by Heinz Irmler and accompained by the Hungarian Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra conducted by Georg Kugi.

A short impression of the piece is given by the finale of 03.oceanum.procellarum

The first composition for the jovaluna is a hommage to J.A. Losy, a series of  morphs, based on an aria by the same composer. Before I started composing this piece, I experimented with several styles and techniques. One of the problems of the jovaluna is that the barrees are really difficult to play because of the very high string tension. So I decided to compose a piece without barrees.

Please come to the International Guitarfestival Rust 2004 and hear the result.
