Performances characterized by elegance and grace.

Violist George Taylor and guitarist Nicholas Goluses, both faculty members at the Eastman School of Music, offer a lovely program of music for viola and guitar. The recording leads us through the various phases and moods of night from the first shadow to darkness to the sounds of night. The performers capture all the moods and colors, the timbre and sonority of the viola and guitar blending and interweaving beautifully. Their interpretations of these works are characterized by elegance, grace, warmth and humor.

Review:
"Both players are masters, and both play with a delightful subtlety and finesse. They are comfortable and communicative playing together, spontaneous and responsive–just what fine chamber music should be." (American Record Guide)

"This is an enjoyable recital of diverse, not often encountered repertoire, performed by accomplished musicians whose intuitive gifts enable them to reveal the essential qualities of each selection." (Fanfare)
