Classical guitarist Matthew McAllister

Scottish classical guitarist Matthew McAllister has a new album out that features all American music. The album is called "American Collection," but there’s not a note of Copland or Bernstein on it. Instead, McAllister features pieces by American composers such as Chick Corea, Philip Glass and even Frank Zappa.

Classical IPR's Amanda Sewell caught up with Matthew McAllister to talk about the new album and listen to some of the interesting music on it. Hear the interview and excerpts from "American Collection" below.
