Jakob's new album presents three contemporary guitar concertos: John Corigliano's Troubadours, alongside world-premiere recordings of works inspired by Corigliano's piece and written for Bangsø: Constantine Caravassilis' Saudade and Wayne Siegel's Chaconne. American composer John Corigliano's Troubadours was partly inspired by medieval musicians, and incorporates a theme by the La Comtessa, Beatriz de Dia, into its evocative material. Fellow American Wayne Siegel also draws upon earlier precedents in his Chaconne, collaborating with Jakob Bangsø to create a piece that slowly unfolds and evolves, while Greek/Canadian composer Constantine Caravassilis uses Greek folk-music as part of his Saudade, a title that comes from a Portuguese word suggestive of bittersweet memories.
