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 George, I will pass on your wishes to the gang! Looking at playing the quartet live at CGR 10!
Enjoy the album and excited to hear your thoughts.
The Quartet playing live at the 10th anniversary CGR would be a real highlight for me. I hope you can do it.
I've listened to the album a few times now. I must say that I agree with Steve about new and fresh. It is very modern, yet not so modern
. It reminded me of hours of listening to Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention LPs as a youth - what a challenge that was in so many ways. His piece on the album does not really reflect that chapter of his career, except in being so original and different. The Mashima is a remarkable achievement which I just love - the Glass just shines out of it. But the Rosheger Lullaby is the discovery for me - what a gentle and emotional piece that is. I really enjoyed all the music on the album. As for the sound you have produced. It is just great. You know I enjoy your playing a lot. But here, as well as the usual technical and emotional precision, you seem to have a fuller, richer, more mature tone, and immense sympathy with the music. Congratulations.
