Modern Hearts - New Music for Electric Guitar

Mies 'Modern Hearts' is an interesting and well-executed set of guitar-driven forays into contemporary classical music. The selection is pleasantly diverse ranging from the incomparable "Vampyr!" to recent compositions such as Lizée's piece that gives its title to the album or Nobles' "Nebula". On this recording, Verdejo's guitar sound is a lot heavier and more rock-orientated than Fiore's on the similar 'american electric guitars' album, which should make it more palatable to a wider audience. Favorite track: Tristan Murail - Vampyr! (1984) for solo guitar.

This album is a sonic world of wonders! A must hear for new music enthusiasts and general listeners alike." - This is Classical Guitar
