Notes and Editorial Reviews

The guitar’s range and sense of national colour are celebrated in this recital by Armen Doneyan, the exciting young French virtuoso, with music from Hungary, Poland, Italy, Spain, Cuba and Brazil. His programme includes Luigi Legnani’s Fantasia, Op. 19 with its scintillating Listzian brilliance, as well as the fiery and evocative Fantaisie on Hungarian Themes by Johann Dubez. The pivotal figure of Francisco Tárrega, who established a unique Spanish voice for the guitar, is included as is the vivacious, flamenco-influenced Sonata by Turina. A contemporary master, Leo Brouwer, is represented by his evocative Rito de los Orishas.
