Designed as a follow-up to the Progressive repertoire serie (DZ 101 to DZ 106), we had proposed a new serie entitled The many faces of the guitar. Now we continue on this path with a second serie of books named The many faces of the guitar 2, with the hope to give an additional tool for the teachers who wish to renew their didactic repertoire, as well as guitar lovers eager of discovering new works for their own pleasure.
Like in the first serie of The many faces of the guitar, the repertoire is entirely original and carefully chosen among our vast publisher's catalogue. D'OZ exclusives from past editions are side by side with new pieces composed especially for this serie.
The d'OZ catalogue is full of little treasures written for all levels by guitarists, composers and teachers dedicated to the cause of classical guitar. The title suggests an optimistic portrait of the instrumental practice in many region of the world, and the scope of the «family« of composers who are regular d'OZ contributors. The crossbreeding of genres and countries are bringing an international flavour that makes these works so special.

Volume 3 follows on closely from the previous book and is a little trickier than their predecessor but not too much so.
Again every piece has been carefully picked for its interest value as well as its technical usefulness and so Adrian Andrei's two Poème Polyphoniques, in 5/8 and 6/8 respectively are evocative and unusual at the same time. William Beauvais' Lineup Blues, marked amusingly «Con Swing!« is a real blues with a genuinely authentic touch to it and will delight many players with its cheek, while Takashi Ogawa's Un Rêve de Crocodile is haunting in its surprising fragility; Francis Kleynjans' Moustique is fluid in its run of semiquavers while keeping one's interest throughout with its slightly unexpected harmonies but these are but a small amount of the fabulous fare on offer here.
Again a quality book with a very useful CD that many teachers will love to try out with their pupils and which many intermediate players will get much pleasure out of.
A recommended buy.
