‘A prince of the guitar has arrived in the musical world’ (Segovia) “the guitarist’s skill must be exercised rather more fully, though you would not think so from John Williams’ performance – invariably splendid; so is the recording” “I, personally, enjoy Duarte’s guitar transcriptions of the Bach Suites for cello played thus even more than as originally conceived. The Scarlatti pieces are a Sonata transcribed by Segovia, and Gavotte excellently transcribed by Ablóniz. Recommended enthusiastically!
“Throughout, the excellence of the programming is matched by that of the playing and of the recording.” (Gramophone)
