Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
New York Times (Publisher) (6/18/00, p.31) - "...[Smith] extracts a beautiful sound from his lute and plays it with an improvisatory flair and a wealth of nuance. Just as important, the music is rich and wide-ranging. It is hard to imagine a more attractive introduction to Weiss's music..." del HMU 11/02 del list
