Notes and Editorial Reviews

With this release of Granados' (1867-1916) 'Danzas españolas' Anders Miolin celebrates his tenth anniversary as a recording artist. Ever since his first acclaimed disc (featuring his own transcriptions of Erik Satie) Anders Miolin has had a faithful following. This sixth release is very much in the tradition established by this adventurous musician. Anders Miolin has sought to overcome some of the sonic limitations of the guitar by performing on a ten-stringed instrument and he has altered between performing original music for guitar and his own transcriptions. As far as we are aware, this disc represents the first complete recording of the 'Danzas españolas' on the guitar. Anders Miolin's many enthusiastic followers will need little Read more tempting. And we shall probably hear a lot more guitarists performing these pieces when they have listened to the new CD. Read less
