Gone Away

Dez Cordas
Released July 2011 by: Summit Records
Available from: iTunes, Summit Records, Amazon
Music by Bartók, Beaser, Falla, Seiber

“An unexpected delight. The concept of this program is brilliant…The Bartok is a magnificent achievement, very effective…Craig Butterfield is nothing short of magnificent. I haven’t heard such expressive playing and virtuosic command since Gary Karr. His tone is gorgeous, his intonation rock-solid, and his phrasing expressive and flexible. He adapts to each style with comfort; one never feels that he or guitarist Slotkin finds the subtleties of the folk languages at all foreign. Slotkin is an able partner, matching Butterfield in technical command and expressiveness.”
