About the new album “Adam Palma Meets Chopin” No-one’s ever recorded the music of Chopin like this before – on the acoustic guitar with a plectrum. The album features a duet with one of the greatest’s Polish musicians and pianists Leszek Możdzer.
‘Chopin, as interpreted by the guitarist Adam Palma heard like never before with a more modern rhythmic approach as exemplified throughout the recording, is strikingly original!
Chopin in Palma’s vision on guitar is highly unusual in the best sense both sonically and beautiful! Whoever said Chopin is limited to the piano? Here Adam Palma takes a courageous leap forward to expand his interpretation with an instrument never before associated with a composer like Chopin! A dedicated work of passion! Bravo!’ Al Di Meola
