From Lulworth – a new guitar ensemble piece by Chris Stell for Jackdaws

News item

It has been my pleasure over the last few years to be involved in various guitar festivals both as a player and a teacher, and it is these festivals that have been the impetus for me to write my own music. ‘From Lulworth’, which was inspired by a walk I took recently between Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, was written during March expressly for the Jackdaws Guitar Ensemble Weekend coming soon 27-29 of March.  The piece is Baroque in style, using cross-string trilling and ground bass. My idea was to provide a piece that was satisfying to play, challenging musically as well as technically, but that could be learned and performed within the space of a weekend.  Chris.
