Ohana: Music for Ten-String Guitar / Graham Anthony Devine

Album Summary

>Ohana, Maurice : Tiento
>Ohana, Maurice : Si le jour parait, for guitar
>Ohana, Maurice : Cadran lunaire
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

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 parait...' is a seven-movement suite influenced by Debussy's piano 'Preludes'. 'Cadran lunaire' ("moon-dial") juxtaposes ideas from classical antiquity, flamenco and traditional guitar music, conveyed through a rich variety of contrasts and moods.
