Dances – Aquarelle Guitar Quartet

Dances is the second release for Chandos by the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet which scored a great success with its previous disc, Spirit of Brazil. The percussive capability of the guitar lends itself extremely well to the rhythmic energies of many dance forms. This collection of dances – appearing in various guises – highlights the versatility of the classical guitar and the manner in which the instrument can be used to interpret such far-ranging compositions.

The music chosen for this album represents an internationally diverse and chronologically varied spectrum of music. Classics such as Boccherini’s Introduction and Fandango sit alongside original arrangements of the music of Piazzolla and Biréli Lagrène and, most notably, a new commission by the British composer and saxophonist Andy Scott. Scott’s Seven Dances and ‘No Looking Back’ is a collection of inspired movements that shows off the guitar’s many attributes in imaginative and dynamic ways, drawing on traits of a variety of contemporary musical styles and genres.



“Four become one in a sequence of dances with a Latin American tinge.”
                                                                           

William Yeoman
 

Gramophone - October 2010

“After a first hearing, I felt as if I had musically travelled all over the world and was more than ready to get back on the plane for another round-trip. The recording has a warm presence, rich tone and a real sense of depth; one feels surrounded  by the sound.”
