Spanish-flavored French Music

Every weekday at 10:30am I play what I call a “guitar pick.” It’s a work featuring the guitar. It can be as a solo instrument, in a chamber setting or with orchestra. On Monday I played a guitar trio by François de Fossa. De Fossa was born in 1775 in the south of France. Besides being a guitarist and composer, De Fossa was an officer in the French military. His trios show a similarity to the Italian composer Luigi Boccherini who made his living in Spain. Among De Fossa’s works is a set of guitar duos with some movements consisting of transcriptions of movements from Symphonies by Joseph Haydn.

This week’s guitar picks:
François de Fossa – Guitar Trio, Op. 18: no 1 – Wynberg, Simon; Beaver, Martin; Epperson, Bryan
Scott Joplin – The Easy Winners – Giovanni de Chiaro
Nicolo Paganini – “Moses” Variations – Gil Shaham and Goran Sollscher
Joaquin Rodrigo – 3 Spanish Pieces – Eduardo Fernandez

This week’s ukulele pick is a song by Toronto-based Zoe Henderson with a sweet original song:
