Notes & Reviews:

Austin Moorhead is a two-time prize-winner in the world's most prestigious guitar competition. He received his Masters of Music from Yale University. Mr. Moorhead actively concretizes throughout the United States and Europe.

"Here in the 21st century, it's a pretty safe bet that anything released on the niche-market Soundset label, presided over by Frank Koonce and Todd Hallawell, is going to be quality merchandise. So it is with this 2009 offering by Yale graduate Austin Moorhead, who fields Benjamin Verdery's take on K.540 alongside a largely unfamiliar but listener-friendly agenda of contemporary middleweights...An eclectic and adventurous release that may not please all the people all of the time, but it's a powerful performance with more than enough high-octane material to make it well-worth owning. - Paule Fowles, Classical Guitar Magazine
