Description

City Scenes

by Gary Ryan

City Scenes (2005) is a wonderful three movement suite for solo guitar. Its two outer movements, Rush and Metropolis, depict the vibrance and energy of city life and contrast beautifully with the lyrical central movement, Birds Flew Over the Spire (depicting the classic English scene of swallows flying around a church spire in late summer). Rush opens in a vital five with poly-rhythms, syncopations and a harmonic language reminiscent of music from Cuba and Venezuela whilst Metropolis conveys the non-stop hustle and bustle of a musical 'city' where influences combine from many different ages and musical cultures. As with so many of Ryan's compositions, this movement is particulary exciting to watch being performed with energetic syncopations, left hand hammered chords, finger clicks, tamboura effects and even the sound of a siren!
