David Tanenbaum discusses the importance of rhythm and uses five selected pieces to demonstrate how a proper understanding of the rhythm improves one’s overall interpretation.
Tanenbaum plays examples from Leo Brouwer’s Study IV and El Decameron Negro, William Walton’s Bagatelle IV, Frank Martin’s Air, and Benjamin Britten’s Nocturnal, III. Restless. Along with his ideas on rhythm, Tanenbaum also shares his opinion on the role of manuscripts and whether guitarists should play from the manuscript or the edition.
Recognized internationally as an outstanding performing and recording artist, a charismatic educator, and a transcriber and editor of both taste and intelligence, David Tanenbaum is one of the most admired classical guitarists of his generation.
He has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, the former Soviet Union and Asia, and in 1988 he became the first American guitarist to be invited to perform in China by the Chinese government.
