for Violin and Guitar
Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Op. 28
The Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Op. 28 by Camille Saint-Saëns was composed in 1863 and dedicated to the Spanish violin virtuoso Pablo de Sarasate. A powerful and evocative showpiece for violin and orchestra - it continually receives performances to this day. The work features harmonies and textures well suited for the guitar, and utilizes both flamenco and classical guitar techniques. It is presented here in a fiery new arrangement with guitar accompaniment and includes performance notes for both the soloist and guitarist. It is available in versions for violin and guitar, or flute and guitar.
Zachary first began arranging the work in 2013 and made a "quarantine-collaboration" performance video with violinist Anna Takeda during the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic. The video can be seen here.

The 1973 classic tune Desperado by The Eagles serves as the title track for the band’s 2nd album. With a western flair, Desperado rose to international acclaim and is regarded as one of The Eagles’ most famed compositions. It is presented here in a version arranged for solo steel string guitar to be played using a flat pick. This arrangement is perfect for intermediate/advanced players looking to add a laid back arrangement to their set list.
A performance video can be seen here.
