SONGS FROM THE FOREST - AUSTRALIAN GUITAR DUO (RELEASED 2012)



“The Australian Guitar Duo has got it all: perfect synchronisation, beautiful phrasing and tone, and charismatic good looks . . . The whole disc is wonderfully entertaining.”                   - Classical Guitar Magazine (UK), August 2012


“They are technical masters who also possess beautiful tone at all volume levels,
and a wonderfully refined collective musical sense . . . magical use of tone color . . . Very impressive”            - Soundboard Magazine, Vol. XXXVIII, No. 2, 2012


“Superbly played”          - Limelight Magazine, July 2012



“They serve up a tasty mix of contemporary and traditional classic guitar work that is as well conceived and performed as most any duo recording today. They reflect sensitivity, power, and elegance in their playing . . . a fine recording sure to please the most demanding listeners.”
