Monday Motivation: James Lentini

“Music is a product of the behavior of human groups, whether formal or informal: it is humanly organized sound.”
-John Blacking, in How Musical Is Man?

Composer/guitarist James Lentini writes music for orchestra, wind symphony, various chamber ensembles, and guitar. This piece is one of a set he wrote for the pedagogue Charles Postlewate’s anthology of pieces for all five right hand fingers. A Song for Spring is an attractive, little piece. If you like what you hear, James has an album of guitar music for sale

    “A Song for Spring” — what a beautiful composition for the guitar! The suite by Lentini that you mention, “The Four Seasons”, really IS worth checking out!
