    Re: Alahambra Concerto

    Hi Fred, Another nice surprise this morning, a new work by Fredrik. I have seen that famous courtyard in a number of different films and concert pieces. The
    classical guitarist John Williams did a video concert staged there. Is that in the palace called the "Alhambra"?
    Your piece starts off at a fast clip and doesn't let up much. I really liked the extended pizz section at the end and thought it captured a lot of the Spanish
    flair.
    I'm listening to the second movement now and although it maintains a fast pace initially, there's a very beautiful slow section with some nice dialogue for the horns and woodwinds. I like the theme at the end of the slow section and then the minor section that follows.

    You sure have a lot of music in you! Thanks again for a great musical excursion. John

    Hi Fred, Thanks for the link to the Max Schultz video. I listened to several of the videos of the group. There is a nice one with a brass trio, plus sax, guitar, bass and drums called "Irish Dream" that I liked a lot.
    One of my favorite works for guitar and orchestra is the "Concierto de Aranjuez"
    by Joaquin Rodrigo. I was happy to hear your plans to write for the guitar.
    Maybe someday your work will be performed by guitarists all across the world, that would be something. John

    Shouldn't that be Alhambra?
    I will listen to it later. Give me some pace, please.
