Praise for Seasons: Live At the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Anthony Wilson, Seasons (Live At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art)

The four guitarists approach the complex counterpoint in Seasons with the precision of a string quartet…throughout the record, the playing and interpretive choices are impeccable.” – Stereophile

(Editor’s Pick: Recording of the Month, March 2012)

Nothing short of gorgeous…as close to understanging the marriage between artist and instrument as we’ll get in this lifetime.” – DownBeat.com Editors’ Picks December 2011

Commissioned by archtop guru John Monteleone, this album features the Four Seasons quartet of guitars in an amazing song cycle written by Wilson. No amps, no effects, just pure acoustic music written specifically for one-of-a-kind instruments.” – Premier Guitar

“a winning, eclectic piece” – JazzTimes

A genius luthier and four genius guitarists create a special, one-off event that’s an artistic treat for both eyes and ears. That makes Seasons: Live At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art a rare type of delight.” – Something Else Reviews

The dialog is exquisite. Winter’s quiet theme is surrounded by muted whisperings. Spring bubbles while musical tulips sprout all around. Summer runs, skips, and leaps. Fall blows and then quietly meanders to winter’s return.” – Fretboard Journal
