If one would want to put a name to the style of Leon’s music, modern jazz-influenced classical music for guitar is probably the best fit, although it creates borders that Leon Albert has already passed.
Even though the music is composed for and often with the guitar, it has not the same guitaristic manners as we maybe know them from other composers.
His pieces are inspired by people, stories and bizarre events from the 21st century and have an interesting stylistic range that can make it hard to classify them. Maybe that’s not even necessary.
Bitonal and atonal structures, uneven rhythm, as much as agogic freedom, melancholy and also humor are only a few things that make Leon’s pieces what they are
The honest, sometimes raw sound of this lovely instrument and the title’s mysterious backgrounds along with the music, put together a very interesting picture that will definitely harm anyone.
