Attention all young guitarists and guitar enthusiasts (but also the others...)
Posted on Sep 06 2011

Good news for guitarists of intermediate, semi-beginner, and more experienced amateur levels. Roland Dyens has just composed no less than 100 pieces just for them. Solo guitar pieces are given a place of choice but there are also a few duos, quartets and a trio. Published in separate pieces as well as several volumes, they will also be available as a single book. This work will be published by mid 2014.

À l'attention des jeunes guitaristes et des amateurs (mais aussi des autres..).
Posted on Sep 04 2011

Bonne nouvelle pour les guitaristes de niveau intermédiaire, les presque-débutants, les amateurs voire les guitaristes plus expérimentés : Roland Dyens vient de composer pas moins de 100 musiques à leur attention ! Si la guitare solo y est certes à l'honneur, la guitare plurielle y a également sa place avec 2 duos, 2 quatuors et un trio. Sous forme de pièces séparées, de différents recueils mais aussi sous celle d'un seul et même livre, cet ouvrage sera publié courant 2014.

Coming out
Posted on May 20 2013

No matter where I go in the world, many questions are put to me during my master classes and after concerts. Often incisive, these questions probe my vision of composition, my approach to sound, my ideas concerning technique, and indeed the very future of the guitar. However, there is one question that I swear is asked of me more often than all others put together - a genuine FAQ - and this is it: How do you pronounce your name? 

Existential, n’est-ce pas? Nevertheless, after a prolonged and cruel silence, I am resolved at last to Come Out. How do you pronounce my name? Here we go: 

With Roland, my first name, one does NOT pronounce the final "d" (i.e. ROW-LAHN). Conversely, the final "s" in Dyens IS pronounced (i.e. DEE-AHNZ). No need to feel complicated or embarrassed just because Paris, for instance, is pronounced PA-REE. Oui, French is a marvellous and romantic language, but logical? Not so much.

So... too difficult? too much to contemplate? I think not. Click here and repeat after me. A little practice is required. C'est tout. 

Whew. It's important that things be clear between us, don’t you think?

 

Warmly to all (my non-francophone friends in particular),

Rolan(d) DyenS
