I am commissioning a guitar concerto from the well-known Brazilian composer Clarice Assad. Clarice is a uniquely qualified composer for this project. She has extensive experience writing and arranging for orchestra (she was the composer-in-residence for the New Century Orchestra) as well as writing concertos (she has, for example, written two for violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg.) She also has an intimate knowledge of the guitar (she is the daughter of the legendary guitarist Sergio Assad and has written a double concerto for the Assad duo).
Check out her previous concerto for two guitars:
