I have always been an admirer of the British guitarist/composer Mark Houghton's compositions, in fact I've published quite a few of his early works and arrangements myself through Lathkill Music Publishers. Written in 2004 for the Appassionata Trio (who gave the premiere in 2007 and subsequently recorded the piece), Beyond Horizons is a wonderfully invigorating and jaunty work in a Latin/jazz style, full of vitality, good melody lines and lovely harmonies. It was written as a homage to the magnificent jazz guitarist and singer George Benson and encompasses features of his guitar playing style including the use of octaves, minor 9ths and syncopated rhythms. As a relatively substantial repertoire piece Beyond Horizons has that "feel good" factor surrounding it and would surely enhance any concert programme, With an eye-catching front cover the presentation is of top quality with full score and separate parts, Recommended.
