Item Number: NX.BRI95204
Mario Gangi's work as a performer and a scholar solidified his place as one of the most important Italian guitar figures of the twentieth century. His extensive scholarly work promoted the publication and performances of contemporary works for guitar. These 22 studies deal with every technical aspect of the instrument, from scales and arpeggios to polyphony and use of the thumb. Far from being dry etudes, however, each of these exercises shows a warm musical personality. Master guitarist Andrea Pace performs these works with consummate skill and feeling. Her previous recording with Brilliant Classics was very well received and contained works by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.
