This wonderful album of music written specifically for classical guitar by some of New Zealand’s finest composers features classical guitarist Matthew Marshall in a set of recordings made by Radio New Zealand producers and engineers between 1993 and 1995.
Fragments is one of four inaugural releases to mark the launch of a new imprint: ECHO. Rattle Echo will proudly present earlier New Zealand art-music recordings that have either never been commercially released or made available digitally, or that simply deserve to be more widely known. These releases will, at the very least, be remastered, but where possible the recordings will be remixed, and in some cases reworked to produce similar but modified or updated versions of the original recordings.
