This new collection showcases Brad Richter’s signature guitar style, with music and performances that have “an American hometown feel with a sophisticated European polish” (Boston Globe). In his compositions Brad “captures typical American themes and transforms them into imaginative original music” (Concertino)

In addition to the works for solo guitar, this disc includes a compelling duo with the nine-time Grammy winning cellist of the Emerson String Quartet David Finckel.

Brad Richter is quickly becoming one of the most influential classical guitarists of the 21st century. He maintains a busy international touring schedule, he is a regular performer on NPR’s Performance Today, he is a winner of the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship and the International Composer’s Guild Competition. Brad’s music is featured in countless film and television scores including the Emmy winning PBS series “The Desert Speaks.”  Lead Guitar, the not-for-profit organization he founded, each year teaches thousands of at-risk children in public schools to play guitar.
