Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In the suave and expert hands of the guitarists Sérgio and Odair Assad, his countrymen, the works [of Antonio Carlos Jobim] sound more like South American Schubert: exquisite miniatures of ardent desire and ineffable regret. . . . The duo-guitar arrangements give all the pieces . . . an intimate sense of tonal richness and a new range of scintillating colors. . . . Two selections from the clangorous two-piano suite “Scaramouche,” by Milhaud, become mellow drops of sunshine. The pièce de résistance is a transcription of “Rhapsody in Blue.” Instead of the crazy energy of Manhattan, we get the sultry glamour of Rio de Janeiro." -- Russell Platt, The New Yorker

"**** This collection is a mix of
Read more two-guitar transcriptions from French composers such as Debussy and Milhaud, four Brazilian works by Antonio Carlos Jobim, and four originals by one or the other of the Assads. A fresh and inviting two-guitar version of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue is by far the longest work in the program. . . . Darius Milhaud’s Scaramouche Suite has long been my favorite work of that composer, in both the versions for clarinet and piano and for two pianos. Its two lively movements dropped into this program and arranged for two guitars work equally well. The original of the Octet by Adam Guettel was obviously for eight instruments, but the two-guitar version sounds complete as it is, without any overdubbing. The very natural acoustics of the recording probably are due to it having been made in two church environments. . . . The music program is a delight." -- John Sunier, Audiophile Audition
