 Recuerdos de la Alhambra says it all June 3, 2017 By K. BAKER (HEBER CITY, UT) See All My Reviews "Classical acoustic guitar is pretty much the only solo instrument I like to listen to. CP, who retired form performing and recording at age 30 is one of the greatest masters of classical guitar. In my book, Recuerdos de la Alhambra included on this CD, is the greatest work for the classical guitar, and CP's performance is without peer. That makes this a must have CD, except that its also included on the 3 disk set 50 Romantic Classics for less money." Report Abuse
