Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a most useful assemblage of some of the best-known pieces from the guitar repertory... All the music is Latin in idiom, not least the colourful Villa-Lobos. Two undoubted classics are included: the Falla Homenaje, among the most sombre and effective of elegies, and the Turina Fandanguillo, one of the early Segovia solos which burst on a moderately receptive world in the 1930's... Some of this is dispensable. That Bream is a good guitarist, however, may be dispensable information but is certainly a proposition which will win universal agreement from whoever hears the record.
