Metamorphoses

sat 8 jun 2013 02:00 
Composer: Patrick Vaillant

In this (4th) special instruments Metamorphoses programme, we delve into the world of course instruments.

When, while talking about guitars, you mention the word ‘course’, you immediately think of American guitar player Leo Kottke. But he has a Dutch rival. Gert de Meijer passed away far too early, and as a tribute to him we start this programme with a track by this master of the twelve-snare guitar.
After that, we go on a tour through Asia Minor, the mediterranean, West Europe and go on a trip to America with the mandolin in Bluegrass.

Famous instruments come by, such as the lute and the mandolin, but also the mandolin family and of course the bouzouki in Celtic music.
Some names, then? Zefiro Torna, Vasilis Tsitsanis, Ano Kato, Thierry Robin, Planxty, Kornog, Mandolinman, Nickel Creek and Patrick Vaillant.
