Notes and Editorial Reviews

Multi award-winning Australian guitarist Jacob Cordover pursues an international career while producing recordings both as a solist and with Rupert Boyd as the Australian Guitar Duo. In the first of three projected recordings for Cala Records, Jacob presents and eclectic program ranging from Bach through Spanish favourites to contemporary popular songs, the album title being taken from the work by his compatriot Ross Edwards. Jacob's playing has been lauded for its 'consummate artistry' and for having 'demonstrated how much poetry and feeling can be obtained from the guitar in the hands of master musicians.' Cala looks forward to continuing the series of recordings with this fine young artist.
