Notes & Reviews:

2008 two CD release, a sensational collection of the warmest, most soothing classical guitar pieces. With roots in Spain and the New World, the classical guitar evokes a sense of escape, vibrant colour and romance. This album is the first release of its kind for Classic FM (the popular UK-based station), and features all of the genre's signature tracks over two hours of music, including Tarrega's hypnotic `Recuerdos de la Alhambra', Rodrigo's `Concierto de Aranjuez' and the haunting `Cavatina' from the film The Deer Hunter. Famous classical pieces are reworked for classical guitar, such as Satie's `Gymnopedie no.3' and Elgar's `Nimrod'. It even features a version of The Beatles' `Here Comes The Sun'. In addition, the internationally renowned guitarist Craig Ogden has exclusively recorded three tracks for the album, including Einaudi's smash hits `Le Onde' and `Questa Notte'. 30 tracks. UMTV.
