Roots - 21st Century Greek Music for Guitar / Soukras, Betts-Dean, Bair, Audentia Ensemble, L'Anima String Quartet and Ensemble
The music in this program covers a spectrum of genres that have flourished in Greece in recent years, from jazz to contemporary avant-garde. These have all had a strong impact on guitarist Dimitris Soukaras’s development as an artist, and in making this recording he took the opportunity to invite some of Greece’s leading composers to write for his instrument for the first time. All works are world premiere recordings.
