New ideas for plucked strings played beautifully
I have enjoyed listening to this CD for the last couple of months since I received it. This is NOT a typical classical guitar album that would induce me to sleep after three or four pieces (I'm especially critical since I AM a classical guitarist). What Buzz Gravelle has figured out is how to compose original music that honors and extends all the instruments he plays. And fortunately he also included his magnificent prepared guitar quartet from the 1990s, "They Go on Mumbling. . .," which was originally on the Modern Arts Quartet CD. The remaining recordings are all of recent vintage, and the fretless classical work that opens the recording is especially alluring, dreamlike, and fresh. Buzz's compositional styles range from semi-improvisational, rhythmically ambiguous explorations to highly structured interval studies. And his playing throughout is terrific. This CD will satisfy any cravings you have for new guitar music--and mandolin too.
