Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Barrueco delivers [Visée's] ornament-encrusted music in magnificent style. The items of Bach deserve no lesser encomium, for Barrueco is one of the most cultured guitarists on the present world stage. . . . [F]ew are likely to match the poise, style and comprehensive command that Barrueco brings to the music in this finely engineered recording, one of the best I have heard for a long time." -- John Duarte, Gramophone "Barrueco delivers [Visée's] ornament-encrusted music in magnificent style.

 Superb December 11, 2013 By Leslie G. (Celeste, TX) See All My Reviews "First heard on WRR -- as it played, I noticed I got more and more absorbed into this rythmic playing. By the end -- I had to buy this CD and I rarely by CDs. I wish I had known about this guitarist since the 1970's when he first started. The selections and the playing are a perfect match -- I can't wait to hear more from him. Manuel Barrueco." Report Abuse
