More information: This collaboration by brothers Steve Hackett (ex-Genesis guitarist) and John Hackett is a skilled and sensitive interpretation of selected works by classical composer Erik Satie. The original works, composed for piano, were here arranged for classical guitar and the aforementioned flute. Flutist John Hackett has played on many of his brother Steve's solo albums, but this is the first full-scale collaboration between the two. The result is a soothing, satisfying, and sometimes haunting album.
