Late Night Classics
Relaxing music for two guitars

This richly atmospheric recording captures the spirit of intimate music making at its best. Listen to it late at night and revel in the complex but gentle sound-world of two guitars.

New music, old music, arrangements and original pieces all combine in this album to create a recording of magical quality. History rubs shoulders with and inspires the present; the grand and noble style of old Spain, whether in music of the seventeenth century by Gaspar Sanz or in the nineteenth-century harmonies of Granados and Albeniz, contrasts with the modern harmonies of Verano and Otoño, written by the duo themselves. 'Tachi-ai' ('rising with one breath') is a potent symbol of how these two musicians work together and how their special sound and musical personalities bring unity to so many disparate elements.

Bach's Baroque Inventions and Fugue are perfect material for this duo who can switch mood so quickly and capture instantly the operatic flavour of Carmen or the calm simplicity of Fauré's Pavane. Vivaldi's concerto rounds off the programme. Its central, slow movement is an inspiring oasis of calm and beauty which speaks to us down through the centuries while the outer movements summarise the essence of elegant music at its best.

Listen to the music making and marvel at the skill and the beautiful sound these two musicians produce, a sound which is at times melancholic and at other times brilliant - and always totally rhythmic and precise.
