Notes and Editorial Reviews

All the composers in this programme were nineteenth-century guitar virtuosos, a fact reflected in its brilliant exploration of the instrument's resources, a field in which Paganini by no means towers above the others. The music for the most part skims the emotional surface but nevertheless makes very pleasant listening. If it is to succeed it requires the services of a performer who is in all respects of the first order, a fair description of Fernandez. In an ideal world one might hope for a rounder tone at some points but in the one we have we can, without great effort, happily settle for what Fernandez supplies.

-- John Duarte, Gramophone [11/1985]
