Cathedral of TreesĀ (classical guitarist Matthew Anderson) works to rekindle the fusion of classical, popular and world music begun by Egberto Gismonti and other progressive composers since the 1960's. Profoundly inspired by the Amazonian people and rainforest, Gismonti used a mix of primal and modern musical elements, informed by jazz, to reflect on the beauty and complexity of the natural world. Drawing from Gismonti's repertoire as well as from other composers who blur the boundaries between musical styles, Cathedral of Trees explores the natural rhythms and mystical sounds of Brazil and beyond through the voice of the guitar.

Traditional Repertoire

Works by classical and popular music composers influenced by world music : Egberto Gismonti, Paulo Bellinati, The Beatles, and their contemporaries.
