Roland Chadwick – Composer

It starts in my stomach. Moves to my head. Shifts to your ears.


Roland Chadwick’s output as a composer has been prodigious and has ranged from works for Solo Classical Guitar, Ballet (Bangarra Dance Theatre and the San Francisco Ballet), Experimental Jazz, Guitar Concerti to Blues and even Prog Blues with a few country songs thrown in for good measure.

His first and last love has always been the Classical Guitar in either solo form or ensemble form (with The Modern Guitar Trio).

The following catalogues represent only his ‘classical’ output. For blues and the more popular forms please refer to the Discographies.
