Here is THE guitar CD/DVD package - "Seasons, a Song Cycle for Guitar Quartet", composed and led by Anthony Wilson and featuring Steve Cardenas, Chico Pinheiro, and Julian Lage. Recorded live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on April 10, 2011 during the exhibition "Guitar Heroes - from Italy to New York," and played exclusively on John Monteleone's 4 Seasons guitars. The DVD gives the complete Seasons song cycle performance along with interviews and historical information about John Monteleone, Anthony Wilson, and the stunning Four Seasons guitars, now part of the Metropolitan Museum's Musical Instrument collection. The CD contains the Seasons song cycle performance and also includes solo performances by Anthony, Steve, Chico, and Julian, plus the closing number played together of Joni Mitchell's "the Circle Game."
These guitarists, their music and their instruments create a compelling and engrossing tapestry of written and improvised music on acoustic archtops that almost defies deunsafeion. Commissioned by John Monteleone, the music score for Seasons is rich and varied and very reminiscent of each changing season, just as John intended when he made the 4 Seasons guitars. The ultimate convergence of art, music, and creativity in one very nice package. Guitar music lovers, this it it!!!
