The Goldspiel/Provost Classical Guitar Duo recorded my Oriental Poppies here on their second CD, inspiring me to write five more movements to make the suite that later became From the Faraway Nearby (see above). The review in Classical Guitar (June, 1999) said: “…Equally successful are the kaleidoscopic textures of the brief and hypnotic Oriental Poppies by Charles Griffin. Centered around a short descending motif, the movement here is fuelled by imaginative quasi-improvised melodic figures and an ever-shifting rhythmic emphasis.” Other composers featured are Leo Brouwer, Napoleon Coste, Edward Diemente, Mauro Giuliani, Radames Gnatalli, and Enrique Granados.
