Two Worlds - 1. Longing for Home

Story Behind The Song

'Two Worlds' was written for and first performed at the 'Dny Klasicke Kytary' guitar festival at the castle Hukvaldy, in the Czech republic. While an invitation to a festival certainly serves as a sound and serious reason to write a piece, there were other more personal motives involved. This particular visit to Europe was the first time I would see my family in the three and a half years since I had moved to Australia. So naturally, I was emotional, anxious, excited and could think of nothing else in the months before my departure for that fantastic reunion I had replayed over and over again in my mind. These scenes not only occupied my thoughts and my feelings, but my music as well. Two Worlds is not just a picture of my journey between the continents. It also describes the two styles of 'popular' and classical music, whose characteristics come together here in this duet for classical and semi-acoustic guitar.
