REVIEWS OF PAINTED MUSIC
The performances throughout are immaculate – LaQuatra and Stanley are first-rate players individually but have great ensemble and mutual understanding. A rewarding listen.
Painted Music is Quatra Duo's debut album. And it would be hard to imagine a more auspicious debut. Their individual and ensemble performance is state of the art but more important is the repertoire on offer. Stanley has a consistently beautiful and eminently listenable sound and LaQuatra meets the demands of the guitar part unfailingly...Go buy it.
Listen on Apple Music
Stanley and LaQuatra play impeccably throughout the release, and as much pleasure is derived from their technical virtuosity as the compositions. Nothing other than the pure, beautiful sounds of the flute and guitar are heard on the recording and nothing more is needed when the finesse of their playing is so rewarding.
"It is a wonderful recording from start to finish. Every piece is strong and the playing is superb throughout."
- Bryan Johanson, composer
"These are brilliant performances of this music. They have to be the finest flute/guitar duo on the planet!"
- James McGuire, composer
