Classical Guitar - Stephen Robinson provides a kaleidoscopic journey through the contemporary guitar repertoire.
NOTES
The ancient art of découpage involves the process of decorating an object using different layers of colorful adornments combined with special artistic effects. With Asian origins dating as far back as the 12th century, this unique art attained great popularity in 17th- and 18th- century Europe, and it remains popular today. Is there a musical equivalent? In this program, guitarist Stephen Robinson provides a kaleidoscopic journey through the classical guitar repertoire. This collection adheres …

Felicidade

Where the music dictates a delicate touch, Robinson's playing has almost spiritual intensity which is very moving, equally where the music needs dazzling bravura, this player supplies this commodity in heaps.

NOTES
A Christmas Feeling CD by Stephen Robinson

The French noël, the English carol, the Spanish villancico, the German Weihnachtlied, the American pop holiday song—all of these partake of one of the most venerable musical traditions in the western world. In its earliest forms, Christmas music probably emanated from pre-Christian music to celebrate the winter solstice; subsequent generations contributed more varied influences: Byzantine Liturgy, Medieval plainchant, Renaissance polyphony, rustic dances, and Protestant hymns.

Grand Solos

by Stephen Robinson

Clear Note
Clear Note
Grand Solos are beautifully written large scale works for classical guitar on the concert stage.
NOTES

Before the Second World War, composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (1895-1968) was hailed as one of the Italian "Five," together with the likes of Malipiero and Respighi; his works were frequently performed by Heifetz, Gieseking, and Piatagorsky, as well as the eminent guitar virtuoso Andrés Segovia (whom he met in Venice in 1932). Segovia later reminisced that Castelnuovo-Tedesco demonstrated an uncanny aptitude for the guitar: the brilliant Tarantella, Op. 87b (1936) is ample proof of this judgment. A …

Stephen Robinson Plays Solo Guitar Works

by Federico Moreno-Torroba / Alexandre Tansman / Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco / Manuel Ponce

Clear Note
Clear Note
The works presented here by his pupil, Stephen Robinson, are among those dedicated to Segovia by his own contemporaries, each of the composers born within a few years of the other and little more than a decade away from the great master.
NOTES
Stephen Robinson Plays

A proper title for this recording might well be “Le Tombeau de Segovia” – or perhaps more aptly, “Ommagio a Segovia.” It is no exaggeration to say that most of the major works for classical guitar published within the 20th century are inscribed to Andrés Segovia. That this should be so is only aspect of the celebrated artist, which would make him unique. Segovia’s influence has been so pervasive as to …
