In this exciting collaboration between classical guitarist Michael Christian Durrant and flamenco guitarist Samuel Moore, these two distinctive artists look to create a truly unique album by bringing their musical personalities together to explore the fascinating connections between the world of classical and flamenco guitar.

Their first collaborative album, entitled ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’, is set for a 2019 release and will include an inspired choice of music from both the classical and flamenco guitar styles. The album will consist of a vivid selection of pieces by well-known Spanish composers, including Isaac Albéníz, Enriqué Granados and Manuel de Falla, alongside an exciting selection of flamenco palos, including Bulerías, Sevillana and Rumba. ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ will contain both solo and duet performances, and the resulting collection of tracks promises to take the listener on a truly unique musical journey into the heart of Spain’s colourful musical heritage.

Having teamed up with PledgeMusic to make this album come to life, your pledges will help the artists cover the cost of recording, editing and mastering the album. Furthermore, the funds raised throughout this campaign will cover photographers’ fees and graphic design costs for the album artwork, and the physical production costs for the first run of 1000 CDs. There really is something for everyone available in the store, so scroll down to see how you can help make this project come to life.

Firstly, if you would simply like to pre-order a digital download copy of the album then the ‘AccessPass’ option is for you. Or, if you would like a CD copy of the album in addition to a download then you can choose the ‘Pre-Order’ option.

If you would like something a little more personalised then you can select the ‘Signed Pre-Order’ option to receive a signed copy of the album. Furthermore, with the ‘Deluxe Signed Pre-Order’ option, in addition to a copy of the CD signed by both of the artists, you’ll receive a souvenir ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ book written by the artists that provides fascinating insight into this unique musical collaboration.

For a very special opportunity to attend the exclusive album launch party (date and venue to be confirmed), you can select the ‘VIP Pre-Order’ option. This special event will include a champagne reception, live performances, and a chance to meet and speak with the artists in person. Tickets are limited, so be sure to select this option early to avoid missing out on this amazing opportunity.

If you would like to really get behind bringing this project to life and have your name printed in the acknowledgements section of the CD liner notes, then the ‘Executive Producer’ option is for you! In addition to this special opportunity, you will also receive two tickets to a UK concert date of your choice on the 2019 ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ UK album launch tour (dates and venues to be confirmed) and access to exclusive digital content from the album recording sessions.

If you STILL want more and would like the opportunity to connect with this project on a truly personal level then the ‘VIP Experience’ is the only option for you! You will receive a collectible framed CD of the album and a photo album from the album recording sessions, both signed by the artists. In addition, you will receive the musical score of a piece of your choice from ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ annotated with handwritten fingering indications and signed by the artists. Furthermore, you will receive a handwritten letter of thanks from both of the artists and a private YouTube link to a unique video recording of a piece of your choice from the ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ album, including a personalised greeting and message of thanks from the artists. There’s even more to the ‘VIP Experience’, so scroll down and take a look at the store to see just how much you’ll get when you select this option. Again, there are only a limited number of ‘VIP Experiences’ available, so don’t miss this truly amazing opportunity to personally connect with the artists and receive a collection of unique ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ collectible memorabilia.

Finally, if you want to host a night that you and your friends will never forget then the ‘Private Concert’ experience is for you. This is an incredible opportunity to organise a live concert performance of the ‘Guitar, the Heart of Spain’ album, either in your own home or a suitable venue of your choice. The number of private concerts available is strictly limited, so make sure that you choose this option early to avoid missing out on this very special opportunity.
