John Williams is one of the foremost proponents of the classical guitar. His mastery of the instrument has seen him travel around the world and collaborate with some of the biggest names in contemporary music.
He has played on many film soundtracks, the best known being ‘The Deer Hunter’ ('Cavatina') and ‘A Fish Called Wanda’; in addition he composed and played the soundtrack for ‘Emma's War’.
West One Music is extremely proud to announce the release of ‘Pure Acoustic’, a showcase of Williams’ originals that captures the maestro’s playing at its very best. Whether the mood is melancholic or more vibrant; whether the style is his immediately distinctive thematic motifs or plaintive arpeggios; the performances on this collection are never less than passionate and deeply evocative.
His music always has that rare and wonderful ability to paint the most vivid of pictures, whilst also providing the right balance of colour and atmosphere to any moving image. ‘Pure Acoustic’ offers a sumptuous set of acoustic creations from one of the most well respected names in music today.
