DFE

DFE

A couple of months ago, my wife and I were celebrating an anniversary with a meal at Petrossian’s, an extremely fancy Russian restaurant normally way out of our price range. So we were definitely not in our usual element. Well, not quite. Our waiter turned out to be an emerging composer. I just can’t escape new music, wherever I am! Anyway, once I learned he had a recording available, I had to check it out. Bisharat creates and performs extremely idiomatic, aphoristic solo guitar etudes, frequently full of delicious (can’t resist) harmonics as they are on “DFE.”
