Notes & Reviews:

Andrew McKenna Lee is that rarity, a composer who is also a highly skilled classical guitarist. 'Five Refractions of a Prelude by Bach' takes J.S. Bach's 'Prelude for Lute', BWV 999 and "refracts" it into a set of highly elaborate fantasies that "map" directly onto critical structural and harmonic elements of Bach's prelude. 'Scordatura Suite' is a collection of three pieces for solo guitar, each in a different tuning - 'Arabescata', 'Dizzying Array', and the stunning title track, 'Gravity and Air'. The altered tunings give rise to chords and voicings that would otherwise be impossible on the instrument.
