Fernande Peyrot: Préludes pour guitare
Smaro Gregoriadou interprets Préludes pour guitare by Fernande Peyrot (1888-1978). During her lifetime, French-Swiss Fernande Peyrot (1888-1978) was considered one of the most important female composers of the 20th century. She belonged to the composers of Frank Martin's generation. Peyrot’s skills and unique music personality brought her to the attention of legendary musicians of her time, including guitarist Andrés Segovia and conductor Ernest Ansermet. Her well-crafted compositional output is quite extensive, including orchestral works, chamber music, choral works and songs. Until fairly recently she belonged to the mostly forgotten composers of her generation. Her four Préludes pour guitare, most probably composed in the early 1930s, show her at her very best.

Gregoriadou: Balkan Dances for solo guitar

Smaro Gregoriadou: reinventing guitar! is the title of Smaro's cd edition released by DELOS in July 2009, which also includes her composition: Balkan Dances for solo guitar in fantasia-form. They are based on themes, rhythms and melodies derived from the Balkan music heritage. The idea of using diverse types of guitar within the same composition was inspired by the considerable variety of traditional instruments with unusual techniques that exist in the Balkans. In the hands of outstanding folk musicians these remarkable instruments and playing techniques revive tradition in a continually refreshing manner; it is exactly this spirit of essential continuity that most “classical music” interpretations would long to gain, indeed. To these astonishing musicians, heralds of simplicity, this composition is cordially dedicated. They are performed on a high-pitched guitar (1st=g#’) and a pedal classical guitar in metallonylon trebles. Live in Athens (1/3/2008)!
