All the music from Einaudi's autobiographical fourth album. Includes the tracks with solo Cello. The composer writes: If someone asked me about this album, I would say it is a collection of songs linked together by a story. But unlike my other albums, it doesn't belong to a time in the past. It speaks about me now, my life, the things around me. My piano, which I have nicknamed Tagore, my children Jessica and Leo, the orange kilim carpet that brightens up the living room, the clouds sailing slowly across the sky, the sunlight coming through the window, the music I listen to, the books I read and those I don't read, my memories, my friends and the people I love.

In memory of Christopher Rowland. Originally a concerto for cello and chamber orchestra, now for cello with a piano reduction of the orchestral part. The concerto is in four movements which are played without a break: Meditation, Intermezzo, Toccata-Scherzo and Song. The work lasts for some 18 minutes and was scored for two oboes, two horns, timpani (doubling tubular bells) and strings(found here in a Cello/Piano form). It is organised in one large arch-shaped structure, with two fast inner movements flanked by two outer slow ones. The solo cello opens the work reflectively, and introduces core melodic material which is continuously developed throughout the concerto. Gradually the strings enter, then wind and timpani, and build a pyramid twelve-note chord, at the peak of which there is a dramatic climax. The music then subsides (solo cello again), but links to the two faster middle movements. The second movement, Intermezzo has an ABA structure and in its middle section quotes the opening of Shostakovich's Third String Quartet (written in the same year as Christopher Rowland was born!). Indeed, the ghost of Shostakovich looms large throughout the concerto in more ways than one. The Toccata-Scherzo is energetic and rhythmically-charged, again using an ABA structure. Here the writing for solo cello is quite virtuosic, but not, I hope, in a shallow sense. The music builds inexorably towards a powerful climax, underpinned by the opening twelve-note chord's re-appearance, together with a violent outburst from the timpani, at which point a tonal resolution (on G) arrives through a pianissimo held chord on strings which leads directly to the final movement - Song. And so the music arrives at its emotional heart through a simple melody (present in other forms throughout the work) announced by solo cello at the very top of its register, against a quiet backdrop of horns and strings. A solo oboe enters, with cello in canonic reply, and all the time the music builds in texture and intensity, now with tubular bells joining in the joyful and optimistic conclusion.

Orchestral work commissioned by the BBC, and premiered by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Andrew Davis, The Barbican Hall, November 1992. Quoting Lindberg: 'After having written a Piano Concerto in 1991 preceded by three works for different orchestral effectives (Kinetics, Marea and Joy) I felt that I had come to an end with a certain musical expression and also compositional technique. All these works were based upon an extended chaconne principle with chord chains cycling around, undergoing constant transformation and being articulated in a very gestural way. The musical paradox and evidently also the challenge was the discrepancy between a brick-like method expressed in a world of gestures (with all difficulties involved in conceiving music out of phrases) aiming at a continuity in terms of progression and development. After the Piano Concerto in the autumn of 1991 I strongly felt that I couldn't continue in that direction anymore. I started to work on a project called Corrente for 16 players, as a study for the full orchestra version entitled Corrente II. In order to bring the harmonic and rhythmic world closer to each other I abandoned the chaconne principle and based the harmony on different scale aggregates. By combining these scales and by filtering or by enhancing them with additional pitches based on more acoustically oriented views of the scales by considering them as partials of virtual fundamentals I was able to work in a rich harmonic world without actually having to do harmonic transformations and progressions. The rhythmic material was based on pattern figures with a rather kaleidoscopic approach of repetition and variation. By combining these pattern figures and scales aggregates I wanted to give the musical expression a narrative sense of streams and directions moving around in different orchestral constellations. Corrente II for symphony orchestra is based on the same material as the piece for chamber orchestra. As the timbral palette and the mass qualities expanded, the dramaturgy of the piece also changed. Corrente lasts for about 12 minutes whereas Corrente II spans over 20 minutes. Basically the original flow of Corrente is still present in the final version of this project. One could think of a landscape, viewed from different distances, approaching it and thus discovering new details or by moving apart from it and seeing it as part of a larger context. Orchestrally the piece is written for a standard formation with, except for timpani and vibraphone hardly any percussions. One particularity was to leave out the flutes from the orchestra. I don't have anything against the flutes, on the contrary, but by doing so the outline of the sound body became enforced as the top of the wind group was scored by either oboes or clarinets. Consequently I didn't include the tuba

Davies's feeling for the potency and bravura of the clarinet goes back to works of the 1960s; his concerto for the instrument is predictably a big, ranging piece, in two linked movements. The first, fast with a brief slow introduction, has the soloist in propulsive melodic flights slipping over into florid runs, but it is a virtuoso piece for the orchestra, especially for the marimba and pair of horns. The Adagio that follows is in the spare, cold, birdcall-riven style of other recent Davies slow movements, exploiting first the clarinet's low register and then, at its climax, the instrument's high extremes. A cadenza leads to the coda, where Davies introduces a Scots tune, previously hinted at, with which he brings the work to an end in F sharp major. Miniature score.

An arpeggio is simply playing the notes of a chord, one after another, in a melodic fashion. Piano, bass, string, and horn players routinely find the study of arpeggios a staple of their learning process. But, somehow, guitarists often manage to skip over this essential musical building block. This book is designed to demystify arpeggios and demonstrate their application in a musical and easy-to-understand format. All of the material is presented within the context of various jam tracks which allow students to immediately apply new knowledge and hear for themselves why arpeggios are essential to their playing. All of the music examples are presented in standard notation and tablature so there is no need to read music. Also includes a special demonstration and play-along CD. Includes "tab" tablature notation.
