About This Work

Composer:  Frank Wallace 

Description: As with many guitarists my age, Julian Bream’s “20th Century Guitar Music” album of the late 60′s was a tremendous influence on me. Though my eventual path led to the study and performance for many years of Renaissance music, I never lost my love for the pieces by Britten, Martin, Smith Brindle and Henze on that magnificent recording. Certainly this Sonata came from years of holding those sounds in my heart. The powerful rhythm and harmony emerged in the midst of several tours in which I was debuting two song cycles in the winter/spring of 2005. It surprised me.

The sonata is comprised of three movements for solo guitar in a romantic 12-tone style: Allegro, Grave, Presto
