Notes and Editorial Reviews

Described by Classical Guitar Review as “nothing short of inspirational”, this début recording by Tracy Anne Smith and Rob MacDonald unveils a refreshing and innovative programme of works by some of the most exciting living composers of our time. Stephen Goss’s contrasting miniatures in The Raw and the Cooked reference musical greats from Django Reinhardt to Astor Piazzolla, and Still the Sea is a homage to Toru Takemitsu. Christopher William Pierce’s mellifluous sound world explores the sensual, the ornate and the spectacular. Following his innovative and rhythmic Niterói, Roland Dyens brings us home with the succulently melodic Comme des Grands.
