Notes & Reviews:

Of all the "philharmonic" or non-guitarist composers inspired to write for Andres Segovia, none has left a larger or more varied body of work for the instrument than Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Looking back over his works late in life, Castelnuovo-Tedesco cited the first guitar Concerto, Op. 99, as his most successful work for the guitar. Today, more than 60 years after its composition, we can once again love this piece for its formal perfection and contrapuntal virtuosity. The slow movement, written as he was fleeing for his life from Mussolini's Italy, is tinged with a uniquely lyrical nostalgia.
