Tal Hurwitz Plays Sonatina op.52 by Lennox Berkeley

Tal-Hurwitz-Lennox-BerkeleyTal Hurwitz Plays Sonatina for Guitar op.52 by Lennox Berkeley. I actually posted a live version of him playing this previously but this studio version is better and who doesn’t love this work enough to hear it again. Nice recording and great playing. I really like his sharp contrasts to different moods, tones, and the push and pull in the rhythm. Sir Lennox Randal Francis Berkeley (1903–1989) was an English composer and wrote this work in 1957. It was dedicated to Julian Bream, who gave its first performance at Morley College, London, on March 9, 1958. He also wrote Quatre pièces pour la guitare (1928) and the Theme and Variations, Op. 77 (1970).
