Album Notes
"What a revelation this CD is! It is definitely one of my favorites of the year." –Blair Jackson, Classical Guitar Magazine

With her new solo CD, Reverie, classical guitarist Candice Mowbray offers an engaging collection of modern and twentieth-century French works by Laurent Boutros, Arnaud Dumond, Erik Satie, Francis Poulenc, Ida Presti and Alexander Lagoya as well as popular melodies by Edith Piaf and Claude Nougaro. Recorded at Commodore Studio in scenic Thurmont, Maryland, this album provides an enjoyable and cohesive listening experience with many works related by hommage. Listeners are transported from the solitude of a fragile, snowy landscape in Dumond's "Hommage a Debussy" to a scene more reminiscent of a Parisian cafe in Thierry Tisserand's arrangement of Nougaro's "Le Jazz et la java."

"This is a labor of love spares no effort and delivers a wonderful variety of repertoire at the highest level. One of the best things is just wondering what will happen next. Emotion, precision, nuance, passion, it's all there in spades. Bravo!"
–Tobias Hurwitz, guitarist

'With my [warmest] recommendations."
–Laurent Boutros, composer and guitarist

"There is a free and easy quality to it that is very expressive, and well suits the music.”
–Mike Kirkpatrick, Kirkpatrick Guitar Studio

"'s exceptional."
–Anthony Glise, guitarist
