Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This disc comprises some of cinema's most memorable musical moments, as chosen and arranged for four guitars by the members of the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet. Without music, movies would not be what they are today, and the Quartet here explores the full stylistic spectrum of the film music genre. 'It is in the interpretation of this variety', they explain, 'that the guitar truly comes alive.' Many, if not most, of the film scores represented on this disc are classics, and they have the awards to show for it. Music from the Academy Award-winning scores for Frida, Titanic, Schindler's List, and Il postino rubs shoulders with 'Minor Swing' from Chocolat, which received a Golden Globe for Best Original Score.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Still, this British ensemble seems incapable of playing with less than a glorious range of sound, perfect ensemble, and exquisite taste. This is superb playing, and the music is ravishing.
