Introduction to REGINALD SMITH BRINDLE by Bream（布雷姆关于REGINALD SMITH BRINDLE的简介）
Of the many composers writing for the guitar today there must be few who have such diversity of style and yet such clarity of musical intention as Reginald Smith Brindle.
Over the past thirty years or so his musical language has evolved in such a way that it is hard to believe that the Nocturne for solo guitar written in 1947 with its almost Delian lushness was written by the same composer as Ten String Music for 'cello and guitar composed a decade later - such was the composer's almost Paulian conversion to near-related serial techniques.
As the guitar in a solo capacity has never happily adapted itself to serial disciplines, it is not surprising therefore to discover that between 1957 and 1970 Smith Brindle wrote virtually nothing for the instrument.
Happily (for guitarists at any rate) this omission has been put to rights in recent years, and a whole series of interesting and unusual works have been written for the instrument culminating in this large and remarkable volume Guitarcosmos.
This represents the composer's finest achievement to date wherein the musical ideas that originate so often from the very spirit of the guitar itself are bound together by a fastidious sound texture significant in its expressiveness, and composed in forms as interesting as they are diverse.
