Rafael Riqueni - Alcazar de Cristal, Volume 1 by Rafael Riqueni. Edited by Enrique Vargas. For Guitar (Classical). Solos. The Great Flamenco Guitars of Today Library. Flamenco. Intermediate. Book. 246 pages. Published by RGB Arte Visual (MB.0801224231). ISBN 9790801224231. Flamenco. 8.x11.75 inches. The three books of the CD !Alcazar de cristal! are a new addition to Enrique Vargas' "The Great Flamenco Guitarists of Today Library" collection. "Alcazar de cristal," the latest work by Rafael Riqueni, is extremely interesting for a variety of reasons. First, there is the wide palette of influences found in the work, from baroque to Spanish musical nationalism, and from jazz to nineteenth-century romanticism - all of which Rafael implements within an unmistakably flamenco musical idiom. Second, there is the complexity of the arrangements, which sometimes include three guitars, a string section, piano, etc... Since there is practically no flamenco literature for more than one guitar, great effort has been made to include these arrangements in the transcriptions, which can be used in both professional settings and for didactic purposes. All the parts where there are more than one guitar have been transcribed in their entirety, making these scores ideal for duets or trios. This opens up some very interesting possibilities for professional flamenco groups or for students who prefer to play with another guitarist. For example, musicians who work in dance companies or who accompany singers can use various falsetas from this album that are arranged for more than one guitar. Flamenco guitar students can also interpret these pieces to learn to play with other musicians. Finally, this work includes a series of pieces that don't come from the world of pure flamenco, and therefore don't demand a deep knowledge of flamenco forms and techniques, which makes them accessible to guitarists of other styles - classical, jazz, Brazilian, etc. - interested in the flamenco guitar, making these pieces a sort of link between the flamenco guitar and other genres. Each transcription includes the following: 1. A history of the form 2. Scales, chords, and flamenco tonalities 3. Compas, palmas and foot-tapping patterns, which, though indispensable for under-standing flamenco rhythms, are rarely analyzed in publications about flamenco. 4. Analysis of the most difficult falsetas with explanations and suggestions on their techni-cal execution. In addition, each book includes 1. A list of basic rasgueados 2. A glossary of flamenco terminology 3. The symbols used in flamenco writing Since altogether this work is over 600 pages long, it is presented in three books in order to make it possible to use. This is the habitual format for transcriptions in "The Great Flamenco Guitarists of Today Library" series, since contemporary flamenco pieces are much longer than they used to be in the past and often include more than one guitar. Enrique Vargas transcribes all the additional guitars, which obviously makes the musical text much longer. In addition, the commentaries, suggestions, and analysis sections make each book a mini-manual of flamenco in general, and the style of each artist in particular.

Pepe Habichuela - Yerbaguena, Volume 2 by Pepe Habichuela. Edited by Enrique Vargas. For Guitar (Classical). Solos. The Great Flamenco Guitars of Today Library. Flamenco. Intermediate. Book. 286 pages. Published by RGB Arte Visual (MB.0801224286). ISBN 9790801224286. Flamenco. 8.25x11.5 inches. At last, the long-awaited transcription of the historic CD Yerbaguena by Pepe Habichuela has been released as an addition to maestro Enrique Vargas' "Great Flamenco Guitars of Today Library". This two-volume edition, as all others within this Library, carries a hand-written exclusive authorization by the author of the music. Yerbaguena is considered historic for the following reasons: one, it is the first album that fuses Gypsy flamenco with the music of India, the homeland of the Roma (Gypsies). The ease with which Habichuela's guitar blends with the colorful Indian melodies of the Bollywood Strings, full of microtones and oriental embellishments is truly astonishing. Two, this work is a fruit of the combined effort of four different members of this outstanding flamenco fam-ily, the Carmona: maestro Pepe Habichuela; his son Josemi, himself a great guitarist, composer, arranger and producer; Juan Carmona, guitar virtuoso and also a great composer; and, last but not least, Antonio Carmona, an extraordinary percussionist. The music on Yerbaguena exudes the joy of living, pure and sincere as the ancestral wisdom of the Gypsy, who, through the thousands of years and miles preserved their soul and their art. The transcription of "Yerbaguena" was complicated by the abundance of Indian instruments, two and sometimes three guitar tracks, singing, etc.. Surprisingly, maestro Vargas not only transcribed all the guitar tracks, but also arranged the most important parts played by the Bollywood Strings, the oud and the mandola for the second guitar. As a result, this work offers flamenco material for solo guitar as well as duos and trios. No need to say, flamenco pieces for more that one guitar have been virtually non-existent on the chart market. It should be added that all the tunes from Yerbaguena are perfectly playable on a solo guitar. As in all of his books, Enrique Vargas offers detailed explanations on the forms included on Yerbaguena, foot marking, tonalities, the basics of the harmonic and melodic language of each form as well as the analysis of the most difficult compas, falsetas and technical aspects of the artist's style. This turns each book into a mini-manuel of flamenco in general and the personal style of each guitarist in particular.

Carlos Pinana - Mi Sonanta. (Score Booklet). By Carlos Pinana. For Guitar (Classical). Solos. RGB Arte Visual. Flamenco. Intermediate-Advanced. Book/CD Set. 100 pages. Published by RGB Arte Visual (MB.8493737849). ISBN 9788493737849. Flamenco. 8.75" x 12" inches. It's not often in flamenco guitar transcription that the guitarist has a title bestowed by a conservatory, and the transcriber Juan Garcia Escudero, is principally a composer. Even more unusual is that they should work, shoulder to shoulder during several months in order to offer the most faithful transcription possible, of the interpreter, following the instructions of the guitarist-composer. Many flamenco transcripts contained only sounds (notes), leave out musical aspects such as dynamics, timbre or expression, to name just a few elements, and just reflecting very little about music composition. The results are a new dimension in transcriptions for the flamenco guitar, using contemporary musical notation techniques, the natural habitat of the composer-turned-transcriber. Book is in notation and tablature. Text is in English and Spanish. "The idea that Carlos and I have maintained throughout the long process of transcription has been to bring the flamenco style to as many guitarist in the world. Outside flamencos or not! And we did creating scores as close to the guitar literature exists, only with the language of flamenco in its pages." Juan Garcia Escudero The CD includes two audio versions (with and without guitar).

Manolo Franco - Aljibe by Manolo Franco. Edited by Claude Worms. For Guitar (Classical). Solos. Flamenco. Intermediate. Book/CD Set. 104 pages. Published by Acordes Concert (MB.8493626020). ISBN 9788493626020. Flamenco. 8.25" x 11.75" inches. 'Aljibe' heralded all that Manolo Franco would bring to his musical artistic life: an extraordinary sound - round and truly flamenco - and an emphatic, clear, clean and polished technique. Whether solea, buler"as, alegr"as or any other style, he was already a phenomenon of musicality and creativity. This album was all it took to rank him among the most important composers of flamenco guitar music. These pieces - true documents for any flamenco guitar player - are unknown to later generations because that recording was not issued again and the originals, dormant, were waiting to be awakened to take their place again among the splendors of flamenco. This was an absence of a transcendental chapter of flamenco guitar since the compositions in this album, true masterpieces, until now were available only in an old recording made by the Spanish national television network. The appearance of these transcriptions is worth a lively round of applause because it is a rescue of something that belongs to all of us. The virtuosity and sensitivity of the interpretation are a gift, note by note - yours to enjoy and admire. En "Aljibe" estaba ya anunciado todo el equipaje que Manolo Franco llevar"a en su vida art"stica musical: un sonido extraordinario, redondo y flamenqu"simo y una tecnica rotunda, clara, limpia y depurada. Por solea, buler"as, alegr"as... era ya entonces un fenomeno de musicalidad y creatividad. Basta este album para situarlo a la altura de los mas importantes compositores de la guitarra flamenca. Estos temas, verdaderos documentos para todo guitarrista flamenco, son desconocidos para las generaciones posteriores debido a que esta grabacion no se reedito y cuyos originales, adormecidos, esperaban ser despertados para asomar de nuevo a los esplendores del flamenco. Esta falta nos privo de conocer un cap"tulo mas que trascendental de la guitarra flamenca, ya que las composiciones que aqu" se encuentran, autenticas obras maestras, tan solo pod"an descubrirse, hasta ahora, en una antigua grabacion de TVE. La aparicion de estas transcripciones merece el mas sonado aplauso pues constituyen un rescate de algo que nos pertenece a todos. El virtuosismo y la sensibilidad de interpretacion son un regalo, nota sobre nota: disfruten y admiren...
