South American Guitar Classics

Top-rated collection of guitar favorites

A stunning collection of works by the finest names in South American classical guitar, including Heitor Villa-Lobos, Manuel Ponce, and Antonio Lauro. Marcelo Kayath‘s interpretation of these classics is surpassed by none, and his performance of preludes by his Brazilian countryman Villa-Lobos is of special note.

“Kayath’s inspirational accounts of the Villa-Lobos Preludes can stand comparison with the finest on record… He plays everything here with consummate technical ease and the most appealing spontaneity.” (Penguin Guide, 3 Stars)

“Colourful miniatures & dances… enviable popularity… Kayath (a Brazilian) is a player of utmost refinement, fluent technique, and clear tone… Warmly recommendable.” (Gramophone)
