Countryman's Prelude and Allegro ~~~ For Solo Guitar ($16.50 CDN) - Tod Dorozio

Description

The first movement of this piece is a prelude-type section which has a plaintive quality to it. The opening descending sequence of chords lead into an ascending one which employs a hammer-on technique similar to that used in Gaspar Sanzís, Pavanas. The second movement is an allegro section which contains a Ďmarathoní procession of quickly moving arpeggiated chords. Beginning with a gradual crescendo, the opening dramatic sequence is accompanied by warm and undulating pedal tones. The dramatic atmosphere continues in a more contrapuntal style, as punchy bass notes are contrasted against subdued arpeggios. The music then gives way to a well accented relief section that ends with a cantabile line on the sixth string. The final portion of the Allegro is a whimsical sequence of arpeggiated chords that runs to the finish line of the piece. Overall, the jovial atmosphere of the final sequence and its 1 / 5 country-style bass line are what give this music its title, Countrymanís Prelude and Allegro.
