All pieces in this programme are inspired from traditional music of a country. They either use folk themes or have a folk “flavour”. F.Sor's Malbrouck is a set of variations on a very famous tune (also known in England as “for he's a jolly good fellow” or “We won't go home until morning'). My “Cyprus Rhapsody” uses two Cyprus folk songs as the basic themes. Belevi's piece is an arrangment of a song famous in Turkey and Greece. N’ Anastenaxo is a Cyprus traditional love song used by Fairdos Kavallaris in a solo guitar piece with the same title. Moravski's “Rachenitsa” is a Bulgarian dance in 7 meter and is “very bulgarian” in character. “Hutorok” is writen by a russian guitarist-composer and great arranger of russian popular music and is based on a typical russian folk tune. “Sakura, sakura” is propably the most well-known japanese folk song and is the basis of a set of variations for guitar by Yukijiro Yocoh. Rodrigo's “Invocacion y Danza” pays homage to Manuel de Falla by quoting from his music themes of markedly Spanish character. The second part of the concert presents music by latin-american composers. Most of these works have become standards of the guitar repertoire.
