1. Inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe story The Fall of the House of Usher, in which Poe wrote "I listened, as if in a dream, to the wild improvisations of his speaking guitar." Koshkin's piece was written for the famed guitarist Vladislav Blaha.
    Like much of Koshkin's work it has an immediate appeal to a wide audience who are both astonished at the visceral impact of the piece, and at the range of sounds coaxed from the guitar, which sounds "bigger than it really is".

  4. Royal Winter Music (First and Second Sonatas on Shakespearean Characters) by Hans Werner Henze is the largest composition for solo classical guitar written to date. It is comprised of nine movements, each movement a musical portrait of a character from Shakespeare's plays. My discussion focuses on the first sonata, comparing a detailed examination of the Shakespearean characters, and any applicable dialogue, with Henze's musical portraits. The musical analysis is from a performer's viewpoint and does not offer a strict theoretical analysis. Instead, my intention is to find key components of form, harmony, and other musical elements that illuminate the inner workings of Henze's music and its relationship to the Shakespearean character.
