Award-winning Danish guitarist Jakob Bangso presents three contemporary guitar concertos: John Corigliano's Troubadours, alongside world-premiere recordings of works inspired by Corigliano's piece and written for Bangso: Wayne Siegel's Chaconne and the Saudade by Constantine Caravassilis. American composer John Corigliano's Troubadourswas partly inspired by medieval musicians, and incorporates a theme by the La Comtessa, Beatritz de Dia, into its evocative material. Fellow American Wayne Siegel also draws upon earlier precedents in his Chaconne, collaborating with Jakob Bangso to create a piece that slowly unfolds and evolves, while Canadian composer Constantine Caravassilisuses Greek folk-music as part of his Saudade, a title that comes from a Portuguese word suggestive of bittersweet memories. Aaron Copland on John Corigliano: "One of the most talented composers on the scene today -the real thing. His music is individual, imaginative, expertly crafted, and aurally quite stunning.".
