The Cambridge Cohort For Guitar ResearchDezember 3, 2023
Delighted to see my Neue Schreibart series in collaboration with Les Productions d’OZ and University of Surrey grow over time.
Here's the latest publication, a modern performance edition of a most brillant piece of music, the "Introduction und Variationen über einen Solo-Steyrer Jodler" by Carl Wilhelm Schmoelzl (1809-1845). It's based on a famous theme of Alpine folk music, which turns into a demanding virtuoso piece in the variations.
Schmoelzl is relatively unknown to today's guitar scene, but a composer, that left us numerous works worth discovering.
