I’m so grateful to my good friend Jonathan Priestley, a wonderful Classical Guitarist and composer based in Derbyshire who recently gifted me a beautiful new solo guitar Sonatina. We’ve buddies for many years Jonathan and I, sharing concerts together, playing duets and sharing our love of all things musical and classical guitar over many long conversations and cups of tea. It was an honor to have the piece dedicated to me and I absolutely love it!
Sonatina is tonal and Spanish in style with fast, exciting, rhythmic outer movements and a beautiful, lilting, slow middle movement. I’ve enjoyed every minute of learning it and am looking forward to performing it once this current lock down has been lifted.
Here we are pre-lockdown enjoying some music together…….
