24 Preludes for Solo Spanish Guitar – Books 1 & 2

The 24 Preludes for Solo Spanish guitar is a project begun in 2005 and completed in May 2013.

The parameters for the compositions were that they be exclusively monophonic being driven only by melody and rhythm and that they be in the guitars range and of course being in all 24 keys, tonal.

Harmony is suggested but without the use of chords in the vertical.

Given the rigor set by these parameters the pieces are dense in-so-far-as all the information the listener gets is through a single line of melody and this focuses the listeners attention on the essential simplicity and purity of melodic curve.
