CD-05 500 Years of Guitar-Music, ©2000

CD5-Guitar Music

After the previous albums (CD-03 & CD-04) I introduced a 'musical intermezzo'. Because I wanted to record some of my most beloved pieces for the classical guitar; still my favorite instrument. This initiative resulted in two more albums: '500 Years of Guitar-Music' recorded in 2000 and 'Reflections in Wood' recorded in 2002 respectively. The first album contains rather easy guitar pieces whereas 'Reflections...' presents a higher and a more technical level of musical performance. Again, I realised that playing in front of just two ’high end’ microphones with nothing but an acoustic guitar to hide, was one of the most confronting ánd challenging experiences a recording musician has to deal with.
