Notes and Editorial Reviews

After 20 highly acclaimed classical guitar records, Liona entered the "new age" with style in 1988. Starting with the Vangelis piece from The Year of Living Dangerously (L'Enfant) and featuring guest appearances from Eric Clapton, David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) and Yo-Yo Ma, the scope and variety of Persona is kind of "beyond belief." Exciting, beautiful and dazzling, it's just like the artist herself.
