Quick Overview

Martin Bresnick’s impassioned piece for solo guitar was inspired by the birth of his grandson, Joaquin, in 2007, leading the composer to reflect in a musical way on his arrival into a brave new world. This work was commissioned and edited by Bresnick’s friend and colleague, Ben Verdery, professor of guitar at the Yale School of Music.
