    Mrs. Robinson for Guitar Duo

    Coo coo ca choo. I found myself walking down the street the other day and absentmindedly whistling this classic tune. To be fair, I had been considering different hit pop songs to arrange for my new guitar duo, Un/Strung, to add to our concerts. Some of our repertoire gets quite heavy and modern, so this piece seemed like it would be a nice refresher for the audience after we pelted them with the sonic burdens of Satie and the likes. My favorite part of this song and arrangement is that whoever plays the Guitar 2 part will enjoy the cathartic technique of tambora, or beating the strings of the guitar…

      A solo guitar arrangement of Robert Schumann’s Carnaval Op.9: V, originally for piano. This is just one movement from Schumann’s cryptic masked ball fantasy, full of historical characters. This particular one deals with the Greek Christian historian Eusebius. The character is supposed to represent Schumann’s calmer side. I’ve always been admiringly envious of the expanse of the piano’s range and capability. The Carnaval movements are great character pieces and really reflect the Romantic style of music.

    Flower Duet

    From Leo Delibes’ acclaimed 1883 opera Lakme, this duet has beautiful melodies and lively interplay between the parts. This duet takes place in Act 1 when Lakme and Mallika go down to the river to collect flowers. Although guitars lack the sustain and volume of operatic singers, they surely make up for it in tone and versatility. Kept in the original key of B major, this piece fits nicely on the fret board. The tune is recognizable to the common ear which makes it perfect for pleasant listening.
