Passion
I've been following the Guitar Duo for many years, since I first saw them live in Connecticut. This is their 3rd album and is definately the best. This disc uses the violin, flute, bass and percussions on most of the tracks and they blend seamlessly. The arrangements are sophisticated and show up the special qualties of each instrument beautifully. I listen to this CD constantly while at the gym or reading. It's music you can both concentrate on and enjoy as background.
