They dined one table over from George Lucas. They explored the vineyards at Skywalker Ranch. They enjoyed the state-of-the-art technology of Skywalker Sound. But, for Marc Regnier and his fellow musicians, the best part about recording a CD together was, well, recording a CD together.
“Being contracted by a record company is rare in our field; to be able to include colleagues in a recording is even more rare,” says classical guitarist Marc Regnier, who summoned guitarist Marco Sartor ’03 and fellow music professors Natalia Khoma (cellist) and Tacy Edwards (flutist) to join him on the recording of Brazilian composer Radames Gnattali’s works– which feature elements of jazz, chamber music and classical music, as well as the very accessible sounds of Brazilian bossa nova. “It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the amazing talent we have here, and it’s a great way to showcase the College itself.”
The CD, titled Radames Gnattali: Solo & Chamber Works for Guitar, is now available on Amazon.com and at Barnes & Noble Booksellers.
