Julien Xuereb, guitar, will release a CD on May 19. Introspection is the first solo album recorded by Xuereb and features his original compositions for classical guitar. Some pieces, such as Méditation, are among Xuereb’s earliest works; they were influenced by Middle-Eastern lute music using mostly modality and improvisation. Gradually, Xuereb incorporated elements from Western classical music and jazz to create his unique musical style. In addition, each piece of this album outlines aspects of the human experience, including time, love, death, remembrance and humanity’s place in the universe.
