GUITAR & COUNTERPOINT
by Pere Salicrú
Though the guitar is
an instrument preferéntemente harmonicly, the polyphonic music
acquires a special perfume in this instrument, overcoat with the music
of Bach, maximum exponent of this style.
There are small the composers who have devoted themselves
to write counterpoint and still less those who have done it for guitar,
with which the digest is always the same one, practically. It is enough
to put in the seeker of the youtube guitar - counterpoint, or guitar -
fugue, to see that the results are always the same works interpreted by
different interpreters, with major or minor success (wisdom).
It is because of it that I have encouraged to
create this page, since one of my obsessions is precisely the
counterpoint, and in some works to believe that I achieve the aim to,
at least, extend the digest for guitar with contrapuntal flavor,
accidentally with it, far from it, to compare myself with the
unattainable figure of the great teacher of Leipzig.
This way so, for those and those who, like me, enjoy these
educated distractions, later I will be adding some of my works
interpreted with major or minor grace for my same one, since my
composer's facet reduces that of interpreter in some occasions,
relaxing about the due and regular study, in few breaks that I have
after the hard work of every day, since it happens to so many people...
