Album Notes
Presented here is a modern collection of
distinctive trio and quartet arrangements
featuring, guitar, flute, cello and viola.

I initially became interested in expanding
the “chamber music with guitar” repertoire
from my teacher John E. Marlow. His work
inspired me to explore the many possibilities
beyond the traditional classical approach.

With recent developments in amplifying
nylon string guitar, the role the
instrument has become more flexible. It is not just delegated to a strictly accompaniment role,
or as in a concerto, a strictly soloist role. The
guitar can now gracefully interact with the
other instruments trading and weaving melody and counterpoint. It can instantaneously switch
from upper register chordal arpeggios, to low
rhythmic driving bass passages. The softest
subtle nuances, are all clearly audible. The
cello and viola can take on unconventional
roles trading off themes and counter
melodies, while the lower register of the flute
can be explored.
This anthology illustrates a new direction for the guitar with respect to it’s role in the chamber music setting.
