Ukulele

A ‘contemporary classical’ ukulele

Ukuleles are much more than simple instruments and fancy musical toys: they are fascinating versatile instruments, capable of nuanced timbres and even powerful volumes. The diversity of construction materials, types and shapes as well of string kinds and performing techniques offer to a composer an invaluable range of tools to fit any style, aesthetic, ensemble and musical need. I have started collecting instruments and contemporary classical music written for the ukulele and to transcribe renowned contemporary and twentieth century scores for it. I am always looking to perform and promote new music: in case you have composed (or you are aware of) scores featuring the ukulele, solo or in any ensemble, please contact me at mail@giovannialbini.it.
