Classical Guitar

A Note from Mark:
Much of my life revolves around the classical guitar. I have been actively seeking out the finest players in the world, listening and experiencing their artistry. I am embarking on an incredible undertaking to bring together the world’s greatest guitarist to perform my original compositions from some of my most successful and/or favorite film scores. Now is the time to bring these contemporary film scores to life in extraordinary arrangements for the classical guitar and orchestra. I will update you as this project progresses. This is truly a labor of love, and it will take some time. But I look forward to sharing the finished product with you! Keep listening… Mark Mancina
