I am delighted to announce the arrival of my new CD, ‘Les Cerisiers’ which is the French for ‘The Cherry Trees’ The title is inspired by the magnificent cherry blossom which blooms on our trees every year in our garden in The Dordogne. It is also inspired by the first track of the disc, ‘The Sakura Variations’ which is a piece based on the Japanese folk song ‘Sakura’ which also means ‘cherry blossom’.
I am deeply proud of the album as it contains four of my own new compositions for guitar. It also has my own original arrangements of Celtic and Spanish folk songs, such as The Water is Wide, The Wild Mountain Thyme and Cielito Lindo, heard here for the first time.
You can enjoy The Wild Mountain Thyme taken from Les Cerisiers on YouTube by clicking here.
These tracks are presented alongside much-loved favourites of the classical and Spanish guitar repertoire, including Asturias by Albeniz, Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring by J S Bach and La Paloma by Sebastian Yradier.
