The debut studio album from John Walsh, released December 7th 2020.
“Each piece on the album has a different mood but it’s united by the common thread of John Walsh’s musical quest. There’s melody, depth, emotion and brilliant technical virtuosity, but also elegance… a very beautiful and haunting composition which manages to convey both lyrical freedom and grace…It’s really superb stuff” – Bernard Clarke, Lyric FM
“The guitarist’s playing is so clear that one often has the impression that one is reading the scores as one listens to the performances. There is no surgical coldness, however, as the dynamic rendering of the phrasing permanently animates the kaleidoscopic frames of most of the pieces…….The density of writing of the zapateado “Irlandalucía” is based on the shimmering of moving modulations which relentlessly renew the sound colors of repetitive patterns and keep us constantly spellbound” – Claude Worms, Flamenco Critic @ Flamencoweb.fr
