    Premiere of “Flower Duet for Guitar Duo” (Sort of)

    To get the obvious out of the way, I apologize for video and audio quality. I actually had no idea this was being recorded and, judging by the quality, this seemed to be a spur of the moment production. Nevertheless, this cell phone video captured the first public performance of Leo Delibes’ “Flower Duet” that I had arranged for guitar duo over the summer. To give a bit of context to this performance, it took place at a Leadership Donor banquet during Frostburg State University’s 2017 Homecoming week. I was largely ignorant of the gig before stepping foot in the theater, all I knew was that myself and my duo…

    Eusebius

      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.

    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.
