Classical guitarist and composer Harold Gretton recently released his CD “the 20th century guitar,” which is a result of his PhD research at ANU into performance practice. It includes four major works of the 20th century, all in different styles and reflecting different genres and influences. There is an Australian work: the Black Wattle Caprices by Ross Edwards; one Spanish work: the unique Sonata by Antonio Jose; an Italian work by a major figure of the 20th Century avant-guarde: Luciano Berio; and finally a work reflecting the influence of the inimitable Andres Segovia: the Variations on a Catalan Folk Song by John Duarte.
