Per-Olov Kindgren

Per-Olov Kindgren is a (classical) guitarist and composer.

He is also an arranger, who brings familiar material to a new instrument, often with orchestral pieces being played on a solo instrument. These arrangements take advantage of the unique nature of the classical guitar to offer a new perspective to familiar melodies.

Here are two pieces you may know, but won’t have heard in this way. I prefer these arrangements to a more conventional orchestral approach. What do you think?

Adagio (Tomaso Albinoni)

Canon in D (Johann Pachelbel)

You can find some more of Per-Olov’s playing in my piece about Antonio Lauro.
