Bruce Paine’s music career began not as a composer but as a concert guitarist. Inspiration came through appreciation of many musical styles and the work of contemporary guitar composers, most notably the virtuoso Štěpán Rak of the Czech Republic with whom Bruce has shared the stage. This association strengthened a fascination for composing and in 2007 he set about writing his first guitar compositions including Finchdean, a piece now popular with student and professional players alike. His music covers diverse themes such as New Zealand landscape and kinetic art sculptures, providing unique listening and guitar playing experiences.

This piece for solo classical guitar was performed in this recording by the composer, New Zealand guitarist Bruce Paine. "Finchdean" is Bruce's most loved solo guitar composition which has been performed in countries around the world including New Zealand, Australia, England, France, the Czech Republic and Mexico. It is a popular choice for guitar students sitting advanced, University level performance exams and has been accepted by the Trinity College of London as valid FTCL level exam reperto

Echoes of India - Seringapatam
This piece for solo classical guitar is a musical tribute to Seringapatam, a town in the Mandya district of the Indian state of Karnataka and place of great religious, cultural and historic significance. Performed in this recording by the composer, Auckland classical guitarist Bruce Paine. The title Seringapatam was chosen for this piece of music because it happens to be the birth place of Allan Kerr Taylor who was founder of the Alberton house and farm.
