Chris Dumigan, Long Ago and Far Away
Three Fairy Tales for guitar
The pieces were written in 2009, but initially I had a sketch of an idea for what is now the 2nd movement. The rhythmic bassline and some of the musical content sounded to me like something from the Arabian Nights, and it was moreover a lot simpler in style than the music I usually wrote, so I completed that one and then had the idea to make the other two pieces slightly unusual, and child-like in their themes and harmonies. The title for the set then became obvious!
I deliberately haven’t given the three movements any separate titles, but I feel that the music itself will create all sorts of pictures in players’ and audiences minds!
