Randy Hathaway – Classical Guitar In America
Classical Guitar In America is a new album release by guitarist and composer Randy Hathaway who is based in Seattle, Washington State USA. Interestingly I have a connection with Seattle and both visited and studied there one summer thirteen years ago, so it’s great to see yet more musical talent being being brought to the fore from this very artistic and productive part of America.
Press release for the album Classical Guitar In America
Randy Hathaway’s debut 2 CD set, Classical Guitar In America, has been released. Fifteen compositions are performed by eighteen musicians in various solo and ensemble configurations. Included within are thirteen guitarists, three vocalists a flutist and violist.
Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Randy’s compositions illustrate tonalities of North America, European and Latin origins. Depictions of 19th century American migrations, images of a cafe in Paris and themes in the Spanish spirit are exhibited. From substantial works of over 16 minutes to petite art songs, Randy’s style is recognizable throughout.
Over 3 years in production, this uniquely immense project celebrates the classical guitar in a variety of different settings. Along with this recording, all compositions have been rendered into sheet music with ten artists contributing images for the covers
