Notes and Editorial Reviews

A lovely program of old and new, beautifully performed with a bonus video.

Formed in 1995 the Corona Guitar Kvartet’s repertoire spans music written in the Renaissance to music written in this century. The Kvartet has worked with composers from Denmark, the US, Latvia, Germany, Italy, Canada and Lithuania and actively promotes new compositions for their medium. This second recording for Albany Records is a recital of works that reflects their musical interests.
