“When I first heard Lost Symphony, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew there’d be strong technical skills but was pleasantly surprised to hear how much else was going on: Melodic development, dynamics, compositional creativity and other elements not always present in music with this high a level of chops.

While there is plenty of fodder for fans of ‘shred,’ there is also no shortage of moments for listeners of true classical, soundtracks and other symphonic music as well. The music may sound serious, but the players have a serious sense of humor, which adds to the overall quality. It is humbling to share ‘guest guitar’ duties with Marty and Nuno, two guitarists I consider to be champions among our generation of players, and an overall honor to be brought in to participate.”

Friedman added:

“The folks in the Lost Symphony project have a deep love for guitar. Let me rephrase that, they are dangerously obsessed with it! Whenever I am invited to participate in their music, it is exciting to be around their tireless enthusiasm, and cool things always seem to happen because of it. The newest song, ‘Take Another Piece,’ may be my favorite of all the LS songs I`ve been a part of. There are some really unorthodox things going on.”
