“I’m excited to introduce to you the world premiere recording of “La Forêt ~ Drie Rivieren” (The Forest ~ Three Rivers), 2 suites for classical guitar, by composer Mark Van Overmeire.

The common theme of the 2 suites is nature, the inspiration both nostalgic, conjuring up experiences of the past; and onward looking, with many questions lingering in the composer’s mind about the challenges we face to protect nature in the coming years.

This is my 6th album, and my 5th with the amazing Grammy Award-winning producer Norbert Kraft.

Enjoy the album. Enjoy nature.
Keep in touch!”

“My fifth and most personal album: dedicated to my beautiful daughter Mariëlle and including a lullaby written for her by her loving dad. Released on November 20th, 2020: World Children’s Day. It is the 4th album that I recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Norbert Kraft.

I combined transcriptions of well-known pieces by Chopin, Debussy, Satie, Schubert and Albéniz with original guitar favorites by Barrios and Tárrega. And I recorded some gorgeous music for guitar and cello, with my childhood friend, cellist Feliks Volozhanin: Albinoni’s Adagio, Schubert’s Ave Maria and the world premiere of Three Night Ballades, dedicated to Feliks and me by award-winning composer Konstantin Vassiliev.

Enjoy the album! Share with someone near to your heart.
Keep in touch!”
