HEALING SOULS for guitar solo


“Healing Souls” is a symbolic title reflecting human suffering during the pandemic period of COVID-19. Through my current work, I strive to heal souls of human beings who suffered and finally survived this deadly virus. Nevertheless, some people did not recover, but their souls will live with us forever. This is the first CD that I publish with exclusively solo guitar music of my own. The Twelve Études serve as studies for classical guitar solo, suggesting a specific performance technique for each composition. They follow a curve line of difficulty starting from elementary level to advance. The Six Préludes were dedicated to people and cities that marked my life. The Sonatas Nos. 1,2,3 emphasize the multiple colors of the classical guitar on the highest caliber.
