Notes and Editorial Reviews

Frank Bungarten once received the higher orders of guitar playing from the great Andrés Segovia himself. Bungarten has recorded three sonatas of large scope owing their composition to Segovia’s phenomenal capabilities as a guitarist.

Frank Bungarten numbers among the music world’s great personalities. His individual approach to most great masterpieces is surprising as well as convincing, especially since he does not content himself with a casual guitar approach and mere finger dexterity.

He purposefully employs his wealth of tone colors in order to flesh out polyphonic structures as if in several dimensions. And he is enthused by this music, an enthusiasm radiating from his performances.
