This is a great CD. Peter Finger is a german guitarist who should be better known amongst the general public. Finger writes very original classically based acoustic guitar music. There is no place here for new-age music. Finger posses a phenomenal technique, and for someone who uses metal fingerpicks exclusively, is the cleanest acoustic steel string player I have ever heard. Finger's classical influences are the modern composers such as Stravinsky and Debussy. Another unusual aspect of Finger's playing is the amount of single-note playing. Fingerstyle players don't like playing scales because of the difficulty in executing them on steel string guitars. Well, Finger plays scales as fast with his fingers as players do using a plectrum, so if you are a guitarist, hang on to your seat belts. Peter Finger actually plays faster on his other CDs. This is an essential purchase.

Many acoustic guitar recordings of original compositions sound like little more than old folk licks all gussied up, but this set by Peter Finger sounds fresh and original, as if the guitar just happens to be his instrument. I could easily imagine Finger writing string quartets, for his music seems to spring from inspiration beyond guitar music. Although the guitar may sound bigger than life on most stereo systems, the sound is clear and clean and dynamic, making this a most enjoyable recording indeed.

In his usual exquisite style, Peter Finger takes you away to far off moods and places. Wonderful to just kick back, close your eyes and totally relax. The next best thing to being there in person

After seeing Peter Finger at a live concert in a small venue, I bought his latest CD, Blue Moon. I was really looking for "Come to My Window" which was the best song of the second set that night. I am also wanting a recording of "Vive la Vie," which was the best song in the first set and his very first song of the night. It is hard to describe his music but highly stylized, combo of many influences..Flamenco, jazz, folk, a bit of rock. He uses the ENTIRE length of the guitar strings...from the keys to the base of the guitar. Original, energetic, at times wild and occasionally dissonant, and always indescribly gifted. See him if you have the chance. Seeing him do his magic on the fingerboard is incredible.
