Notes and Editorial Reviews



Aspects portrays the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet's love of musical diversity. It is a collection of music that observes a startling variety of perspective and which reflects the group's ability to craft an emotive and diverse musical tapestry. The album includes original works for four guitars, arrangements that have been made by members of the group, and even a new work written especially for this project. Aspects is both retrospective and prospective: it includes favorites which the Quartet has been performing for many years and also pieces which it has learned specifically for this recording and which will form the basis of new concert programs in the future.
