In the troubadour tradition, travelling musicians carried news and culture from one region to the other. For those of us not lucky enough to catch modern troubadour Mesut Özgen?s multi-sensory performances, his first solo release lets us in on the news. Özgen is widely known for making classical guitar accessible to a wide-range of music lovers. Troubadour is no exception, offering compositions inspired by Spanish, Turkish, American, Hungarian, Argentinean and Indian folk musics. Featuring compositions by Carlo Domeniconi, Anthony Newman, and the prolific Christopher Pratorius.
