Although all three are classically trained and inspired, each guitarist has a distinctive approach to composition and performance. With varying geographic and musical backgrounds, Grigoryan, Towner and Muthspiel are all intent on expanding the guitar oeuvre, and have led vividly different forays into world, jazz, and modern classical music. The music of From a Dream celebrates these influences, highlighting their individual artistry within a trio format, creating a truly new ensemble 'voice' in the guitar world.
