A great new CD called ‘PASSIONS’ has been released by the truly great Australian artist (living and breathing here in Adelaide) John Della-Torre, which debuts his original compositions for guitar.
This kind of offering, from an Australian Classical Guitarist, is quite unique in these parts, and I believe it should be supported and encouraged through the sales of this CD: WORLD WIDE PLEASE!
For those of you who don’t know about John, you should know that, over the years, he’s been a huge influence on the development of Classical Guitar in Adelaide.
John Della-Torre is one of Australia’s leading Classical Guitarists, and is highly regarded as both teacher and performer. Based in Adelaide, he has held teaching positions as Lecturer in Guitar at both the Elder Conservatorium of Music and TAFE.
In the realms of performance, one of his great passions (apart from solo recitals) is to demonstrate the versatility of the guitar by working in the fields of jazz and contemporary music, and in various ensembles; some of which have been recorded by the ABC.
More recently he has focused on music composition, and in the 2006 Adelaide Fringe Festival he premiered and performed his original works for solo guitar and guitar duo.
One of the compositions, the “Passionata Suite”, has since been rearranged by John for guitar and harp, and is featured on “PASSIONS” along with his new composition “Latino Suite”.
Well..you’ve just got to get a copy of this CD! Apart from John’s great original compositions and superb playing, this offering is unique, and will become an important piece of Adelaide Guitar ‘memorabilia’.
Here’s what you do:
Go to this site and have a listen to some of the tracks from the CD.
