"In their recording 'Portrait' Duo Tenebroso truly speak using the hues and tints of their namesake. Tenebroso or 'Dark' is certainly the side of the pallet they prefer, and they explore every wonderful dusky shade of it. From Reich to Vivaldi, the repertoire is quite diverse, but a common mournful thread can be detected throughout. They are at times thoughtful and expressive, at others precise and athletic, but always musical."
-- Dr. Andrew Zohn, Composer & Guitarist
" Love listening to this music. Beautiful and sensitive tone, fine musicianship and an excellent recording."
-- Jane Darcey, Composer & Guitarist
About A Guitar Recital:
This collection of iconic pieces for guitar performed by David Franzen contains music from many cultures and centuries but they come together to weave a lyrical tale.
This mostly live recording is not made from a single performance but is collected from many over the years and most of these pieces have latin roots and are among my all-time favorites. Manuel de Falla, Isaac Albeniz, and Paco de Lucia are the epitome of what wonderful music has come from spain's great musical traditions. Even the Bach Chaconne owes some of it's beginnings to spain where this continuous variation form originated.
In the best circumstances the voices of these great musicians can ring out again, in spite of their passing, in the truth of their inspirations.
About The Graduate Recordings:
This recording is a window back in time to one of Kristen's earlier performances. Remixed & Remastered for amazing sound.
