Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The percussive capability of the guitar lends itself extremely well to the rhythmic energy of many dance forms. The music that the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet has chosen for this album is internationally diverse and chronologically wide-ranging. Classics such as Boccherini’s 'Introduction and Fandango' sit alongside original arrangements of the music of Piazzolla and Lagrene. There is also a new commission from the British composer Andy Scott. The album will be launched on 30 June at a concert in the concert hall of the Royal College of Music. Gramophone commented about the first disc of the Quartet released last year: "If, like me, you usually find anything more than two classical guitars a transgression of good taste and a guitar orchestra a complete abomination, this surprising new release from the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet will force you to revise you opinions."

Reviews

A great album for Study!
Aquarelle Guitar Quartet is; Michael Baker,Vasilis Bessas,James Jervis, and Rory Russell. This album is remarkably well composed, and performed. The overall interplay between guitars is masterfully done. If you're a musician studying classical guitar composition technique, or if you just want to hear something other than just traditional classical guitar. You can either learn a great deal, or you can broaden your appreciation for such a versatile instrument by listening to this album.
