Notes and Editorial Reviews

The “Michele Pittaluga” International Guitar Competition was first held in 1968, and is still one of only a handful of guitar competitions that have achieved genuine international prestige. In 2017 it celebrates its 50th continuous year, and this celebratory compilation of recordings by past winners brings together performances at the highest level of some of the finest music written or arranged for guitar: from Rodrigo’s ‘challenge’ to the player in Elogio de la guitarra, to Rameau’s picturesque mimicry of birdsong and Walton’s masterful Bagatelles.
