Ascione, Domenico; Dashow, James; Tallini, Arturo

Repertoire for solo guitar has gained in depth and quality in recent decades, with acoustic and electronic techniques enjoying an ever more imaginative coexistence. Arturo Tallini’s recital explores contrasting approaches for his instrument, beginning with the ostinato textures of Reich’s Electric Counterpoint, an acknowledged classic in this field. Tallini’s transcriptions of early piano works by Cage create a mood of reverie, while Carter’s Changes forms a mercurial dialogue. James Dashow’s iPiece fuses acoustic and electronic elements to stunning effect, while Arthur Kampela’s Percussion Studies have proved pivotal in exploring new sounds for the guitar.
