In the latest All Strings Considered podcast Scott Wolf talks Dr. Alex Dunn about some very interesting Turina pieces written for laud quartet.

From Scott:

“Coming fresh out of his GFA lecture on the same subject, Dr. Alexander Dunn speaks with All Strings Considered about his new guitar quartets, adapted from quartet arrangements Turina made himself for the then famous Aguilar Laud Quartet.

You’ll hear about Turina’s life during these fruitful collaborations with the Aguilars, coincidentally taking place around the time he began writing his famous solo guitar works. You’ll hear Alex, along with Randy Pile, Robert Ward, and myself, play these new works for the classical guitar, as well as Alex’s solo arrangement of Ligeti’s Sonata for Cello, and his insights into Turina’s compositional process and life in the 1920s and ’30s. “
