I am really happy to announce the release of my new album, American Collection.
Probably the most ambitious project I have undertaken yet with some mighty challenges along the way, from recording in two different countries, preparing music by nearly all living composers with their input throughout the process, music that was improvised alongside composed and a guitar quartet of minimalist music. It was a fantastic process and the result I am so pleased with and I hope you will enjoy it too.
You can find out more about the album and order at the link below.
Purchased the download and listening now to Children's Songs. Love it. Sheet music, please?
That is so cool! Amazing how fast music can be shared now, so happy to hear that you are enjoying it. Many more treats are in store as the album develops. The arranger of the Children's Songs is Forbes Henderson who has made arrangements of all the songs with various changes over the years since Barrueco first recorded them. They are not in print at the moment I am afraid but Forbes is a pretty easy guy to find and also a very pleasant chap so I would suggest reaching out to him.
I enjoyed the video, Matthew. It gives a good taste of what is on the album. And I must say, it is my kind of music. I particularly like Mishima - Glass is my favourite composer. To see and hear four great classical guitarists play one of his excellent works is really something. Please pass on my appreciation to Allan, Uros and Sasha. I hope the four of you can get together for more of this stuff! Any chance of a recital?
By the way, I had been intending to order the album - this has prompted me to do that right now.

Thanks for posting the lovely video. I've just completed my order - also prompted by the video reminder. I really enjoy the Celtic Collection, and am sure will equally love the American Collection. Can't wait to see where we go next in our discoveries of the world's musics travelling through Matthew's Albums
