Music From the Hearts of Space

Hearts of Space

Stephen Hill

About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:
The complex, resonant harmonies of the acoustic guitar. Emerging out of Central Asia by way of North Africa, Spain and Italy, the modern Spanish-style guitar has become the world’s most popular musical instrument. What, you might ask, is so special about six strings on a medium size box?

Well first, size matters. The guitar has a four octave range; it’s flexible, yet small enough to be portable. Second, the acoustic guitar promotes a certain intimacy. Like the harp, it’s an instrument that wants to be caressed. It’s generally played with the fingers, which are always right where you need them. Finally, the guitar is versatile; it plays notes and chords with equal grace, can be simple or complex, and melts into the music of many cultures. In short, the acoustic guitar has made itself indispensable.

On this transmission of Hearts of Space, another exploration of the acoustic guitar, on a program called FINGERSTYLE 2. Music is by DOUG YOUNG, TOMMY EMMANUEL, WALL MATTHEWS, STEVE GRAHN, RICH OSBORN, WILLIAM ACKERMAN, ALEX DE GRASSI, ESPEN JØRGENSEN, JOHN DOAN, and MURIEL ANDERSON.
