Fantasia sobre motivos de La Traviata (G. Verdi) arranged by Julian Arcas and Francisco Tarrega. Transcribed and edited by Christopher Alexander. ($12.00)

This new version of the controversial “Fantasia sobre Motivos de la Traviata” includes a new section composed by Francisco Tárrega. For several years scholars have debated as to whether the work was written by Francisco Tárrega or Julian Arcas. After careful review of the manuscripts, it would appear that the work was written by Arcas and expanded by Tárrega with the new section included in this score.

Soju In Seoul by Jonathan Marshall ($10.00)

Soju is a popular liquor in South Korea, and it safe to say that it’s the countries’ national beverage. I had about an hour lunch everyday during my workweek, and I used this time to write Soju in Seoul at the public school where I taught in Korea. 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mutations on Dies Irae by Glenn Caluda ($12.00)


Mutations on Dies Irae is based on the well-known Gregorian chant sequence from the Requiem Mass that has been used as a basis for compositions by many composers, including Franz Liszt and Hector Berlioz. This piece uses the theme in many forms, sometimes complete, sometimes in fragments, and sometimes in tonal inversion, as in the Chorale section. It culminates in the chaos of the Furioso before returning to the resignation of the opening Adagio.

Sketches of Children by Kevin Vigil, for Guitar Solo and/or Guitar and Narrator. ($25.00)



Sketches of Children was inspired by the writings of my former student Monika Gallegos. These short pieces seemed to write themselves as I read the stories. Nine of these musical sketches can stand alone as solo music. The other two, Bau-zie-gaul and Mark require narration. The order of these pieces is at the performer’s discretion; however, this publication presents my preferred order when performed as a complete set. The remaining nine stories, which may be narrated, are included in a separate part. For reference, Sketches of Children was recorded on my CD Stories for Guitar (available online) and several are available as YouTube videos published by www.guitarascendant.org.

It depicts a band of skeletons approaching and then retreating from the listener.
