Matt Palmer plays Night by Rudnev


Guitarist Matt Palmer plays Night by guitarist and composer Sergei Rudnev. Palmer is a great player and the Director of Guitar Studies at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, and Coordinator of the Eastern Shore Guitar Festival and Workshop. You can learn a bit about Rudnev via this Naxos Bio excerpt: “After a childhood in the small village of Osinovka, Sergey Rudnev, an avid collector of traditional Russian folk-songs and dances, was strongly influenced by the rich musical culture of his native environment.Sergey Rudnev has said his purpose in writing music is ‘to create complete works for the guitar built upon popular Russian folk songs using folk and classical techniques’. His compositions ‘strive to emulate the sound of the orchestra within the limited boundaries of the guitar’, and he likes to use the entire range of the instrument, utilising the higher register to explore ‘its expressive timbre’.”
