Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Guitarist Victor Villadangos is excellent. His tone is clear, his playing clean, and as a native of Buenos Aires he has a natural feel for this music." - American Record Guide July/August 2002

"A charming programme elegantly played. Argentina has produced many fine guitarists, as notable for their performance of European music as of that of their own country. Victor Villadangos' reputation rests thus far on the latter... Villadangos is a refined player in every good sense and his avoidance of 'folksy' roughness works in the music's favor. Recording quality and annotation (provided largely by the composers themselves) is excellent." - John Duarte Gramophone May 2002
