''Life is an odyssey. We all carry it literally within us, in our genes and souls, experiencing it throughout our lives. This odyssey starts in Seville, Spain in 1546 and takes us through England and Germany (16th century), Sweden and the Baltics (17th and 18th centuries), Paris (late 19th century) and New York (20th century) to a dreamscape in 2019. My search for sound has also been an odyssey that has led me to extensive research of the repertoire and the development of the 12-string Dodeka guitar. It is a unique instrument built by Ermanno Chiavi. My idea was to expand the range and the sound spectrum of the traditional guitar, enabling new arrangements and compositions. Just as Odysseus altered his appearance, these free arrangements alter the pieces' appearance but not their substance - the borderless odyssey of the soul.''

Press Quotes

Ander Miolin plays a twelve-string guitar-but not the kind you're imagining. A twelve-string folk guitar is strung in six courses of two strings each, each pair tuned either in unison or in octaves. This means that the guitar is played essentially the same way as a six-string guitar would be, each pair of strings being fretted together, but it gives a different sound because of the additional strings. Miolin's guitar is very different: it has twelve separate, independently tuned strings, which create the same essential sound as a six-string guitar, but with a much wider range of pitches. This enables him to put together a program like this one, which consists of Renaissance and baroque works for the (similarly configured) lute, as well as unusually complete arrangements of piano pieces by Erik Satie and several original pieces by Miolin himself, all of which make use of his guitar's expanded range. This is not only a technically impressive album, but also a deeply enjoyable one, that any library would do well to add to its classical collection.
