Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lazhar Cherouana, winner of the 2012 coveted Pittaluga Competition, graduated with a Gold Medal from the conservatory of Lyon under the world famous Peruvian artist Jesus Castro, studying further with Eliot Fisk and Marco Tamayo in Austria. Here he demonstrates the guitar's versatility and capacity to absorb many styles and idioms. Rameau's mimicry of birdsong is the spectacular opening to a program which unites Dusan Bogdanovic's Serbian energy to the Basque lyricism of Manjon's Aire Vasco, and the delicate colors of Asencio's Colectici Intim to the 19th century Italianate virtuosity of Legnani and Regondi.
