Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The program is wonderfully imaginative. The Dvorak is treasurable! I've loved the music since I first heard it, and never imagined it could be done on guitar. Josph Achron's 'Hebraic Melody' and Komitas Vardapet'sdances are delightfully exotic, and Bulgarian composer Atanas Ourkouzounov's Divertamento sparkles with the irregular Baltic rhythms that are his mark.

A recital of works emanating from East European musical cultures, transcribed for guitar quartet. Guitarist Johan Fostier holds four international contests first prizes, including the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America Contest 2001.
