Notes & Reviews:

In their home base of New York City, Arc Duo's performance highlights include recitals at renowned venues such as Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, where their debut was noted by Guitar Review magazine as "electrifying, reflective, and always engaging". The 'Commissioning Project' is marked by dedication and commitment to new works and composers; Arc Duo commits to multiple performances of each commission and takes care to highlight the new work's structure, concept and origins to audiences.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
I had no idea what to expect when I popped this disc in; all of these works are commissions. The Arc Duo - flutist Heather Holden and guitarist Bradley Colten - gave their debut recital at Carnegie Hall in 2004. The next year they launched the project that has created these four works and others. Here are two solid and sensitive players who set about their task of unfolding just what it is the composers have to say. It's worth hearing again and again. Both are vibrant storytellers through their instruments; often I was spellbound. Especially to Shafer Mahoney, thank you.
