Belo Horizonte: 10 Concert Pieces for Guitar
Siegfried Schwab, Andreas Knoblich
Belo Horzonte, “Beautiful Horizon” is a guitar playbook for finger stylists and classical guitarists full of gorgeous sounding ballads and Bossa Novas, Among well-known pieces like “ Belo Horizonte” and “Ballade für Anna” (ballad fir Anna) from the German TV series “Anna” you will find numerous highlights – some melodic and melancholic, some based on jazz and full of tension.
To ease up the access to the pieces the authors have built rhythmic patterns which train the picking hand. Audio examples of the 10 pieces for one or two guitars can be streamed free of charge on the Schott Website.
