Item Number: S0.887715

The  guitar concerto Phygein Adynaton (Impossible to Escape) calls for a guitarist  with two classical guitars (one of which is prepared with paper-clips) and  orchestra. The work is in one movement throughout but essentially has two parts divided in half by the guitar Cadenza at the end of the first  part. The first part is evocative and stochastic. This “invocation”is around a tonal center where guitar and orchestra coexist in equal terms. In  the second part the orchestra takes a different, more dynamic part. The  prepared guitar sounds almost distorted, like a new instrument melodic and percussive at the same time. This part of the concerto is darker in the mood  and of a philosophical point of view is trying to give a direction in the  battle between life and death.
