Music to inspire!
I stumbled across the music of Francis Kleynjans when I first lived in France some years ago and have been playing his music ever since. His hyper-Romantic pieces are a bit too 'sweet' for many in the classical guitar world, but he does write beautiful tunes.
This one is more demanding than most, with a few techniques which push it beyond a straightforward intermediate level with the melody singing out over the soaring arpeggios, the lightly played trill and the delicate artificial harmonics at the end.
I love Kleynjans' markings: 'intimate', 'more intimate', 'in the distance', 'even more in the distance'...
All these things added together make for a great study piece and not too painful on the ears!
