Napoleon Coste Prelude 1 is part of a very accessible set of six preludes from a master romantic guitar/composer. Coste is a relatively underplayed early 20th century classical guitar composer. Why? Well it maybe due to the perceived difficulty of the few pieces that are currently available on YouTube; and yes they are tough to learn and execute.However that is not the extent of his catalogue. In fact there are loads of pieces that have yet to be brought into the light. Preludes Op. 49 is a case in point.
Not convinced try the YouTube video below.
These 6 little miniature pieces were first recorded and released by Rhayn Jooste in 2017. They are perfectly constructed bits of music that explore a few musical ideas and the romantic language. Some use the entire fret board, others investigate the depths of chordal harmony. All are beautiful to play. They are great beginners pieces, due to being sufficiently challenging, musical and being relatively unknown – until now!
