Album Review

Linda Kohanov []

Ellwood expands his scope a bit on this album, with subtle ensemble works that elegantly express his love for renaissance and baroque music in an updated context. Keyboards, percussion, flute, and bassoon are used sparingly and effectively in arrangements that feature several guest artists (including fellow Canadian Bill Douglas). This is a delicate, well-balanced effort.

William Ellwood's Biography

Linda Kohanov []

As the story goes, Ellwood cajoled his parents into buying him a cheap, nearly unplayable guitar when he was 12 years old. The instrument was too warped to play chords, so he came up with the right-handed picking style he uses to this day. The Canadian-born artist later developed an interest in renaissance and baroque music, taught himself to play the lute, and eventually designed a 7-string guitar so he could transcribe lute pieces without sacrificing any voicings. Ellwood's classical music leanings are apparent on his Narada recordings, although his music has a gentle, contemporary feel to it as well.
