Prospero Dreaming - New Zealand Guitar Music by Lilburn and Farquhar
Gunter Herbig (guitar)

[ Naxos / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 1 June 2009

This is the first comprehensive recorded survey of the guitar music of Douglas Lilburn and David Farquhar, the two pre-eminent composers who enriched New Zealand's musical culture in the modern era.

"Classical guitar music can be a dreary exercise, too often relegated to bittersweet Mediterranean holiday soundtrack, but this disc of works by two of New Zealand's most famous composers is indeed compelling. Expertly performed by Brazil-born New Zealand-based guitarist Gunter Herbig, much of this set retains hints of the refreshing air of Segovia's Spanish favourites whilst injecting enough modernist kinks to keep things interesting." Cyclic Defrost

"[Herbig's] playing is incredible, how can you communicate such power with an instrument just made of wood and nylon strings? …Fabulous, totally and extraordinarily fabulous." LaGuitare.com
