This is an original programme including the famous first Rossiniana of Mauro Giuliani, the Sonata-Fantasia of Frederico Moreno-Torroba and two creations of the Montreal-based composer Maxime McKinley.
Figures de Sable was composed for Jérôme Ducharme in 1998 when Maxime McKinley was still a guitar student in the class of Jean Vallières at the Montreal Conservatory. Mandala was composed in the winter of 2010 after Mr. Ducharme asked Mr. McKinley to compose a piece for this DVD project.
The Rossiniana presents a collection of arias from various operas of the famous Italian composer Gioachino Rossini. Frederico Moreno-Torroba composed few large scale instrumental pieces and in 2001, the manuscript of the Sonata-Fantasia was found. This is an important addition to the major contribution of the composer to the guitar repertoire.
