This double CD features a highly varied selection of works: from J.S. Bach to Astor Piazzolla, and from solo to guitar quartet. Owen Moriarty plays on all tracks: he is a member of the ensembles Totally Plucked (with Clyde Clemett, Peter Leask and Alan Roskilly) and Toru (with Peter Leask, Chris Hill and Mike Hogan).
This album represents the world premiere recording of four New Zealand works from two of these performers: Mike Hogan is the composer of Hammerowen, In the Caves and Chasing the White Whale, while Peter Leask contributes Aatidhlge.
" Technically, Owen Moriarty’s playing is as clean as a whistle with tonally strong projection. More to the point, it’s his flair in winkling out new repertoire that impresses. Listening to his wide range from baroque to postwar, everything is in perfect style." - Ian Dando (The Listener, April 2004)
