Guitar Trek est. 1987

We are proud to be heading into the studio for our seventh album – a collection of great Australian repertoire – and we’re taking it GLOBAL!

Excitingly, we’re currently in discussions to release this album on the prestigious classical music record label, Naxos – giving this music the global release it deserves.

Focusing on music by the late, great Phillip Houghton, the album will also feature special works for the guitar quartet family by esteemed composers Nigel Westlake, Richard Charlton and Elena Kats-Chernin.

Many of the works have been commissioned and written for Guitar Trek and we can’t wait to bring this music to you!
