Gerard Cousins performs his original composition 'The First Beat is the Last Sound' in the workshop of Beauchamp Classical Guitars.
About the piece:
"This was written for performers in a guitar competition so I was fearless in writing something that was difficult to play. The arpeggio pattern is a further development of ideas demonstrated by Leo Brouwer, particularly in his étude simple no.6 and first sonata. There are no notes played on the first beat of the bar until the final chord - hence the title"
