LIST OF WORKS

for solo guitar

DOIS DESENHOS (2019/20) - 10 min.

    Two movements, slow and fast, sweetly composed out of melodic lines that intertwine. Like two free drawings.


BALADAS BRASILEIRAS Nº I - BOITATÁ (2018) - 14 min.
commissioned by Vitor Noah

    This piece aims to narrate the indigenous legend of the Brazilian fire snake.

PIÈCE DE CONCERT Nº I (2018, rev. 2019) - 9 min.

    This is a virtuoso piece for solo guitar that explores percussive aspects of the instrument.

​DARKNESS WITHIN (2017, rev. 2018/19) - 14 min.
commissioned by Giacomo Susani

    This work for solo guitar is written as a fragmented chaconne; it is written in a slightly different tuning giving the guitar a sombre more obscure resonance.

RICERCARE (2016, rev. 2018/19 ) - 5 min.

 

     This piece is written mostly in two-voice counterpoint and portraits motherhood as ever struggling sacred entity; it uses the guitar's natural resonances much like the Renaissance music for bass viol.

L’IMAGÉRIE DE NOS PENSÉES (2012-16, rev. 2018/19) - 39 min.

     8 preludes for solo guitar; each prelude deals with a particular abstract image of thought; it is a post-impressionistic approach to the representation of scenery through music.
