Internationally renowned as a brilliant innovator of the classical guitar, Paul Galbraith has been working since the 1980s towards expanding the technical limits of his instrument, besides augmenting the quantity and quality of it's repertoire. These efforts have already resulted in a series of critically acclaimed recordings of works by Bach, Haydn and Brahms, along with his own arrangements of folk tunes from various countries, all of which demonstrate the originality of his musical personality. By exchanging the traditional guitar for the eight-string Brahms Guitar, which he helped to develop, Galbraith found the ideal instrument with which to interpret the challenging Classical transcriptions from his highly personal repertoire. His latest project brings him to Hollywood, California to record a special recital program in the famed Studio A of Capitol Records. Legendary recording engineer Al Schmitt captures every nuance and detail of Paul's magical guitar in this very intimate setting. With Mozart, Britten and Bach featured in the recital proper, the encores from Albeniz, Ravel and Bach are destined to please and should not be missed.
