Ragtime for New Year
This collection is aimed at beginners and intermediate guitarists. It contains pieces covering a variety of styles: from joyful ragtime and striking blues, to romantic waltzes, melodious ballades, and miniatures maintained in the Latin American style. The common feature of these compositions is the melody, the clear harmony, the transparent texture, the clear form, and the level of difficulty – which has been maintained throughout. The effects and guitar techniques applied in the songs, i.e. rasgueado, pizzicato, flageolets, tremolo, tapping the guitar body, enabled to highlight the richness of the colour and verbal abilities of this instrument. The works have been organised into four groups associated with the seasons of the year. This is why the album starts with a few “spring” miniatures; next the “hot rhythms of the summer”, then the “autumn impressions”, full of reverie and nostalgia, and lastly compositions which conjure up “winter images”.
