CD | The Amsterdam Guitar Trio – Again


The Amsterdam Guitar Trio

plays music by

Bach, Bizet, De Fallia, Van Veen and others



Ever since its formation in 1978‭, ‬the Amsterdam Guitar Trio has transcribed music originally written for other instruments‭, ‬ranging from pieces for piano solo to symphonies for full orchestra‭. ‬The international success of the Amsterdam Guitar Trio was not‭ ‬only a result of their excellent musicianship‭, ‬but also of the uniqueness of their presentation‭. ‬

Categorieën: ,


Apart from their much-praised‭ ‬virtuosity and musicality‭, ‬the trio has been singled out‭ ‬for its programming‭: ‬surprising transcriptions were followed by contemporary pieces that exploit unknown possibilities‭, ‬hardly imaginable on the guitar‭. ‬The Los Angeles Times wrote‭: ‬they broke all the rules‮…‬‭ ‬and got away with it‭. ‬The trio stopped performing in 2004

This compilation consists of works no longer available on individual cd’s‭.‬
