Classical Guitar Concert
A varied and very attractive program, by one of the finest young players.
It includes Gerhard's unjustly neglected Fantasia (1957), and Britten's Nocturnal, a monumental masterpiece, eight (short) movements based on Dowland's song: "Come heavy sleep, the image of true death" which we hear in full, unusually, at the end of the piece. Full programme notes available for download. Michael Butten, John Dowland, J.S.Bach, :Luigi Legnani, Joaquin Rodrigo, Isaac Albeniz, Roberto Gerhard, Benjamin Britten (Mocturnal after John Dowland, Op 70)
