Giulio Tampalini playing Giovanni Podera’s Contrasti (Omaggio a Frank Martin). I like this for a few reasons. I’ve always loved Martin’s musical language, that mix of tweleve-tone serialism with strong tonal centers mixed in to keep the listener centered and grounded. However, this work has some nice idiomatic moments in it. The composer is a guitarist himself which help to explain this. Also, how awesome is it to get a free score?
Giulio Tampalini is one active guitarist. I’ll try to contact him to get an interview going if his english is workable. I’ll keep you posted. His website is under contruction but I guess you can visit his myspace page (oh god I hate myspace).
