On this recording, Canadian composer and guitarist William Beauvais presents the listener with an eclectic anthology of his works for guitar, both solo and with other instruments. Passionate, other worldly and intensely lyrical, Invisible Cities is a virtuosic romp through seventy minutes of captivating music. Beauvais takes us from the stately elegance of ragtime through the spirited rush of atonal moto perpetuos with the confidence of a mature and masterful performer.
