Guitarist Hilary Field plays her own composition, Donzella: Fantasia on a Sephardic Lullaby.
It is based on the Ladino song Durme Hermosa Donzella (Sleep Beautiful Maiden) and inspired by these lyrics: “Listen, feel the sound of my guitar. Listen, my beautiful, to the song of my sorrows.”
It is a piece from her new CD, Premieres, which features all new, previously unrecorded pieces as well as music composed for Ms. Field. More info is on her web page: www.hilaryfield.com.
