ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The concept behind this album is very simple; it’s a collection of some of my favourite pieces for solo classical guitar that I have come back to play again and again over the years. From the ‘tug at the hearstrings’ melodies of Albeniz to the musical genius of J.S. Bach, all these works have a common thread: they are exquisitely beautiful, passionate and intelligent pieces of music.

The recording was done on location at SIBA Buddhist Retreat Centre in East Gippsland, Australia, a place I have often stayed over the years to recharge and reflect. It was a wonderful experience listening to the natural world as I walked around the property between the recording sessions. I recorded some beautiful moments such as native birds in the forest, frogs conversing by a creek in the evening and even a Tibetan monk playing traditional instruments! I wanted to communicate the unique setting that this album was recorded in so I've included some of these lovely peaceful moments throughout. I hope you enjoy the album!”
