New compositions by Nylon String Guitar composer Tom Salvatori (Chicago IL) and Grand Piano composer Iris Litchfield (Bromley, UK).
CD1: Guitar and Piano in Ensemble
Chamber String Arrangements by John Catchings
Subtitled: These little pieces went to Nashville - CD1 features our new Nylon String Guitar and Grand Piano works accompanied by full-on Chamber String Ensemble arrangements warmly and tenderly created by John Catchings and featuring real chamber players in Nashville TN.
CD2: Solo Guitar and Solo Piano Pieces
Subtitled: These little pieces stayed home - CD2 presents the same compositions as featured on CD1 but captured in their more minimal original solo performance - accompanied by nothing other than a composer's desire to share each piece as originally conceived - hoping you'll find them as engaging and welcome as a visit with an old friend.
We are in a time when a lot of other artists out there seem to be taking shortcuts, cutting back on production, and using synth or sample pads for strings and squeezing their releases into compressed mp3s as the flavor of the day.
Contrary to that approach, we've held steadfast to our belief that only the employ of real professional musicians using real instruments will truly breathe life into a body of work that will best stand the test of time and bear repeated listening.
We hope you'll agree. Quietly enjoy.
- Tom Salvatori and Iris Litchfield, August, 2010.
