About this Recording

OHANA, M.: Guitar Music (Devine, 10-string guitar) - Tiento / Si le jour parait… / Cadran lunaire

The guitar music of North African composer Maurice Ohana, though indebted to Spanish culture, is far removed from any stereotypical Iberian aspects and, with the exception of Tiento, was written for the ten-string guitar as played by Narciso Yepes. Inspired by the possibilities of this newly developed instrument, Ohana’s imagination created a unique, complex and highly inventive musical language which makes immense demands on both player and listener. The enigmatic Si le jour paraît…is a seven-movement suite influenced by Debussy’s piano Préludes. Cadran lunaire (‘moon-dial’) juxtaposes ideas from classical antiquity, flamenco and traditional guitar music, conveyed through a rich variety of contrasts and moods.
