Impressionatas

IMPRESSIONATAS for solo guitar by Eugène den Hoed Muziekuitgeverij Iduna VOF 26pp. This compilation of grades 3-4 pieces are in a similar vein to the same composer’s Guitar Reflections, where a collection of studies, sixteen in this book, are presented to the student to improve not only their repertoire but also various guitar techniques such as arpeggios, slurs, scales, phrasing, high positions, etc. From a personal viewpoint I found these pieces a little more attractive than the ones contained in the afore mentioned book. They contain some nice melodic lines, interesting harmonies and some excellent rhythmic material for the student to get to grips with. Well worth a look at. Steve Marsh – Classical Guitar, march 2007
