    Abstract

    Manuel Defalla - Homenaje pour "Le tombeau de Claude Debussy", G56
    Alberto Ginastera - Guitar Sonata, Op 47
    Steve Reich - Electric Counterpoint for live guitar and tape
    These works are masterpieces of the Twentieth Century guitar repertoire representing the sole contribution by each composer to the guitar's repertoire. Though varied in musical language - late Romaticism, atonality and minimalism - each displays the unique, innovative and idiomatic "guitar" culture of each composer - Flamenco (Defalla), Argentinian Pampas (Ginastera) and American Jazz and Rock (Reich).
