Album Notes
David Patterson has performed as a soloist and chamber musician in the U.S. and abroad. In 1988 he founded the critically acclaimed New World Guitar Trio. The group, dedicated to forging new ground in the music world, gained international recognition through its arrangements, commissions, recordings and innovative performance style. As the groups producer and arranger, David explored various genres of music from Beethoven to the folk music of Portugal. He also worked closely with composers Osvaldo Golijov, Claudio Ragazzi and Dana Brayton on works commissioned by the Trio.

In addition to his work with the New World Guitar Trio, David Patterson has performed with various ensembles including the Auros Group, Musica Viva, The Boston Modern Orchestra Project and the Harvard Group for New Music as an artist in residence. He has been a guest artist at the Tangewood and Bowdoin music festivals. David worked with Composer Osvaldo Golijov and soprano Dawn Upshaw as an arranger and performer in the Tanglewood 2003 world premier of the opera Ainadamar under the baton of Robert Spano.

In 2003 David's recording of Jimmy Page's White Summer/Black Mountainside was featured in a compilation CD Guitar Harvest along with guitarists Andy Summers, Bill Frizel and Ralph Towner among others. The CD's proceeds are donated to provide resources for the music education programs for inner city schools. His most recent project, a solo classical guitar recording, features music by Villa-Lobos, Brouwer, Ginastera and Bach.. The CD will be released in fall of 2005.

David has also conducted master classes at Berklee College, University of Hawaii and The Saint Louis Guitar Society in addition to various music institutions in South America and Asia. He is currently on the faculty of Gordon College, Longy School of Music and Tufts University.

Outstanding Classic Guitar Compilation
From the masterful Chopin pieces, the passionate and sometimes brooding Villa Lobos works, to the modern Ginastera, I found this CD inspiring.
