Roland Dyens has made quite a substantial contribution to the repertoire for guitar ensembles over the past several years. His original compositions and arrangements are among the most substantial and colorful pieces in the genre. This particular work is richly textured and deliciously layered, with new details emerging on each hearing.
Alfonsina y el mar is one of South America's most treasured songs, telling the tragic story of the celebrated poet Alfonsina Carolina Storni, who ended her tormented life by walking into the sea just as her final poem, Voya dormir, was being read by the public in the morning newspaper.
Dyens' arrangement of the song captures the emotion most poignantly and sensitively. This is a very fine work that will challenge an ensemble and that will be most affecting to the audience.
David Grimes (Soundboard Magazine)
