From a Dream
‘From a Dream’ by MGT - Wolfgang Muthspiel, Slava Grigoryan & Ralph Towner. This global collaboration from three acknowledged masters of the guitar world was recorded in Melbourne in December 2007.
Music is a miraculous generator of possibilities. It is a language that can reach into far corners of the globe to merge diverse musical backgrounds, personalities and nationalities. As in the case of MGT, lives begun in Austria, Kazakhstan and the United States converged in Australia and discovered a musical unity.
The classical backgrounds of all three, plus their compositional and contemporary improvisation skills were a perfect blend from the outset. The title piece, "From a Dream", literally came to Towner in a dream. It has come to have another meaning, because for all concerned, this is truly a 'dream group'.
Wolfgang Muthspiel – electric and classical guitars
