I – Bold and Bright
II – Adagio Sostenuto, homage to Elgar
III – Finale: Allegro Molto
I don’t know of any guitar concerto which is as consistently successful on all fronts.
– John Williams
Goss’s expertly orchestrated concerto gear-changes from bustling, jazz-fuelled energy to Elgarian mostalgia to vigorous Latin rhythms… a veritable roller-coaster ride.
– Gramophone Magazine
This piece is a treat from beginning to end, using the guitar to the fullest, featuring sections of complex. powerful strumming that drives the multi-metered writing.
Goss’s wonderful orchestral textures and spaces allow the guitar access to a position where it positively soars along with some quite sumptuous sounds.
