Two of our friends have had to cancel their places at the workshop that’s coming up in southern Crete. We are going to miss them. It means though that a couple of places are now available. The dates are May 3-10. We’ll be based down on the coast near Rodakino. It’s a beautiful spot and the traditional Cretan music, of which there is plenty, is really wonderful.
The big news for me is that a project that has been on the go for the last seven years has finally seen the light of day. It’s a collection of my pieces arranged for the classical guitar and is published by Faber&Faber in conjunction with Volonte & Co in Milan. The idea came from guitarist Marco Rossetti and we’ve been batting thoughts back and forth since then. Marco’s transcriptions are meticulous as are his interpretations on the attached cd recorded on an instrument by Florentine luthier Andrea Tacchi.
A very nice review by Chris Dumigan has been included in the April edition of the UK Classical Guitar Magazine.
