This is a modern-classical concerto for guitar and small orchestra, dating from 2007-2008. It has, concerning the style and character of the music, much in common with my also Spanish-like Harp concerto of 2010. The 1st movement is moderately fast and in sonata form; it has a pastoral atmosphere. The 2nd movement is slow and in Lied form, with two themes and a middle section; the main theme is very tender and is first presented by the guitar. The 3rd (and final) movement is fast and in an extended rondo form (ABACADABA); the main theme is toccata-like. Digital performance using Sibelius 4 and Kontakt Player Gold (from an earlier version). Score moving videos and play along videos are on my YouTube-channel. This guitar concerto is dedicated to Dušan Popović Lipovac. It has been arranged and performed by Dušan Popović Lipovac, accompanied by AcademX orchestra, on 15th February 2013 in Novi Sad, Serbia. This performance is on YouTube. Dušan Popović Lipovac therefore has made an arrangement of my guitar part of the 1st movement (with fingering etc.), which I have separately uploaded on IMSLP. In 2019 I revised the guitar part of all movements based on what I learned from his arrangement of the 1st movement, his performance of the other movements, and my own meanwhile more advanced knowledge about guitar writing. I made also some changes in the cadenza of the 1st movement. On IMSLP is my last version.
