  • Barrios for Flute and Guitar

    Agustin Pio Barrios (1885-1944), known as Mangore, was a virtuoso classical guitarist who rarely appeared in public alongside other musicians. The body of work he produced was exclusively for solo guitar with no chamber music whatsoever. This book, Barrios for Flute and Guitar, is the first publication to feature Barrios music arranged for guitar and flute. Author, guitarist and music historian Rico Stover and his wife, flutist Jananne Lovett (1943-2016), collaborated in recording an outstanding album of guitar and flute arrangements of Barrios music; three of which are presented in this book: Aconquija (Aire de Quena), Julia Florida (Barcarola) and Danza Paraguaya. Stover writes in his Preface: The three works featured here are exemplary of [Barrios ] ability to synthesize Latin-American and European musical/cultural elements into a new and fully integrated whole that yields a novel and pleasurable listening experience. Written in standard notation with downloadable audio and a separate flute part, Mel Bay Publications proudly presents, Barrios for Flute and Guitar. Includes access to online audio.
