This album by guitarist Aleksandr Loginov is a selection of works by composer A J Williams, whose music is published by Bergmann Edition. The pieces are all classical guitar solos, with haunting evocative melodies and sophisticated harmonic structures. The recording achieves a magical atmosphere thanks to the intensely musical performances by Loginov, and to the beautiful sound production by Kirill Voljanin. Bookended by an introduction and a coda from the title piece “Quiet Music”, the album has a flow all its own, and takes the listener deep into a unique musical world.
