The album of original works for solo guitar written by New Zealand composer Michael Calvert,  display the versatility, dynamic range, and earthy timbre of the instrument, while developing a unique musical language influenced by serialism, New Zealand culture, and the guitar’s tradition in several genres, from classical and folk to rock, jazz, and pop music.

Listen to this one, by all means.”
