Guitar Concerto

The music on this CD looks forward to the twenty-first century and the possibility of a new aesthetic for classical music. It intentionally crosses the boundaries between classical and popular music.

It looks to recognisable forms as a model for new music. The three songs arranged for orchestra with guitar soloist are modelled on popular song forms. They are abstract pieces that are simply meant to be good tunes but they also recognise that all music begins with the song and with melody. In this respect, these songs aim to encapsulate the most essential elements of good music.

This CD is dedicated to the composer's wife, Trudyanne.


Andrew Blyth

Andrew's music intentionally crosses the boundaries between classical and popular music.

Press quote

“Owen Thomson plays the music with obvious affection on vritousity and is accompanied in the Concerto by a "Virtual Orchestra" which intriguinly manages to sound quite authentic, albeit perhaps too perfect.”

— John Barns, 3MBS FM Libretto
