?QUEEN GUITAR RHAPSODIES? features seventeen Queen songs arranged for guitar and orchestra.AVAILABLE AT WWW.CARLOSBONELL.COM
Brian May has described "Love My Life" as "absolutely exquisite"
The original concept and guitar arrangements were done by David Young, who can be found playing guitar in the Queen musical ?We Will Rock You? in London?s West End.
On completion of those original arrangements, David and Carlos decided that the album would sound better with orchestral accompaniment and Gary Hind was brought in to arrange orchestral parts around the original guitar parts.
With the original guitar parts now adapted to be accompanied by an orchestra (and in two cases a choir!) Carlos, David and Gary flew to Barquisimeto, Venezuela on June 21 2007 to begin the recording of the album with the Lara Symphony Orchestra and choir conducted by Tarcisio Barreto Ceballos with whom Carlos had worked previously.

For what I've heard (a couple of previews) that's a great album! It's nice to hear Queen in a kinda different way.

Thumbs up!!!
