Debussy / Cicchillitti / Cowan: Intimate Impressions
Artist: Debussy / Cicchillitti / Cowan
Title: Intimate Impressions
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
The excellent new album Intimate Impressions for Two Guitars by the duo Adam Cicchillitti and Steve Cowan consists of music originally written for piano, harp, or two guitars by leading 20th century composers who spent the bulk of their careers working in Paris, such as Ravel, Debussy, Monpou, Tailleferre et Jolivet. The arrangements, the majority of which are by the Cicchillitti/Cowan duo, eloquently illustrate that the tone colors, intimacy, and pure lyricism of the composers' styles are ideally suited to the guitar, and that the harmonic language translates beautifully to a guitar duo. Simply captivating!
