Guitar Concerto (in 3 movements)

(in classical style)


(Russian virtuoso Dmitry Tatarkin edited the guitar part. The work is  dedicated to Hearne’s friend Selma Maria Nelson (photo), who died in a sea accident).

This is a highly tuneful and straightforward concerto, written in a classical style by  Hearne. The first movement depicts brief scenes and moods associated with Spain.  There is a sense of dance, including a stately early ‘sarabande’. The second  movement is romantic and evocative. Raindrops are heard – one can imagine a  lovely and fragrant Spanish place in rainstorm. In the third movement there is a  feeling of vivaciousness and activity – suggesting horse-riding and enjoyment.
