After Seven Years

Guitar music in a variety of styles, yet reflecting a single underlying aesthetic. That aesthetic has something to do with freshness and liveliness, favoring tastefulness over virtuosity and intelligence over cliche.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bart Hopkin has been playing solo guitar in live performance and recording situations since forever. He’s also a designer and builder of unusual musical instruments, director of the organization called Experimental Musical Instruments, and author of several books and CDs featuring unusual instruments. This CD, being a collection of guitar music, doesn’t have much in the way of far-out instruments, but it does feature several distinctive-sounding guitars that Bart has made.

Bart trained as a classical guitarist, and this CD includes three classical pieces: a couple written for early guitar, and a guitar transcription from one of the Bach violin partitas. But most of the material on here is not classical. It comes from all over the place – there’s some folky stuff, some standards, some things that Bart himself wrote. Bart’s particular musical perspective is the unifying element. The music is distinctive & fresh, tasteful and intelligent; warm enough yet spicy enough.

After Seven Years
I bought this CD specifically for the version of Pastures of Plenty. Listening to the entire album was a very pleasant surprise. Bart's talent and training show through beautifully. His arrangements are interesting and fun. With electric guitar we often expect loud, noisy material but that was not the case on this recording. Very listen able, very enjoyable and it will get multiple listens as well as some spins on the radio. Thanks!
