Description

2008, 'Tribute' is a continuing expression of Steve's fascination with the classical guitar and a homage to the composers and performers who have inspired him, in particular Andrιs Segovia Steve is perhaps unique amongst his rock contemporaries as a credible classical player and 'Tribute' represents his purest engagement with classical music to date 13 guitar solos including works by Bach, Granados, and Barrios with 3 Hackett originals - 'The Fountain Suite', 'Cascada' and 'Sapphires' Of 'The Fountain Suite' Hackett comments...
"What can be said about Andrιs Segovia that hasn't been said already? Let's just say on the nylon guitar his playing informs my every note! I wrote this as a tribute to his eternal influence".
