Andrew Paul MacDonald Classical Guitar - Solo Guitar Sheet Music

Andrew Paul MacDonald is a celebrated Canadian composer, guitarist, conductor and music educator. Though as a guitarist himself one might suppose his works to concentrate on that stringed instrument, his compositions include a Violin Concerto (winner of the 1995 Juno Award for Best Classical Composition) and a concerto for tenor saxophone based in part on the opening notes of Charlie Parker's "Yardbird Suite," with space for improvisation – certainly not the norm for a classical composition for orchestra. But it’s in keeping with MacDonald's musical interests and experience, which include rock, blues and jazz.

No saxes or violins here, however. It’s all about solo classical guitar. That’s more in keeping with his life’s work as a classical performer. MacDonald continues to work as a composer and teacher of same – he is a professor of composition at Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke (Lennoxville), Québec. And he still finds time to perform in concert as guitarist, lutenist and conductor, with orchestras, string quartets and other ensembles, and with his jazz group the MacDonald-Breton-Sullivan Trio and with the Future Blues Band.

His compositions have been recorded by numerous artists and ensembles. He himself has released a dozen recordings, and appeared on the recording 20 Years of Resistance, International Artists for East Timor, alongside the likes of Peter Gabriel, Ginger Baker, Loreena McKennitt and others.

So yes, he knows his stuff, and he knows how to teach it. That’s not to say that if you study and practice his Classical Guitar – Solo Guitar music you’ll be appointed to the Order of Canada for contributions to Canadian music as he was. But that shouldn’t stop you from trying.
