Bryan Johanson's " -24 Preludes" - for solo guitar

This is a really nice piece that I just reviewed for www.thisisclassicalguitar.com. There's lots of beautiful music, it's quite easy to sight read, and it's a really good piece to study if you're interested in composition.

Michael,
Your review is quite thoughtful and interesting. I first heard some of these at a concert that Michael Partington did before Bryan had fully completed the set. I've since seen Michael perform some of them. I talked to him afterwards and he said he has some that he really likes and enjoys performing and some that he is not so fond of. But his recording of all 24 is definitely worthwhile to get a good feel for Bryan's compositional language.

Thanks for the article.
