"Check out Alison's latest CD, 'Incandescent', a wonderful collection of works played beautifully. We loved it!"
International Guitar Festival of Great Britain

Incandescent

Incandescent has two meanings, one being an intense glow, which can generate colours and secondly being full of high emotion and passion. Beethoven described the guitar as “an orchestra at your fingertips” because of the many different colours that can be achieved when playing it. The CD displays the guitar's abundant colours and nuances and is highly expressive. This CD will be sure to delight listeners with it's enchanting mix of well known guitar works and new compositions. Composers include:Bach, Giuliani, Mertz, Tarregá, Albéniz, Lovelady, Ryan and Cottam.
