Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

The Observer
It is quite possibly the first attempt to recreate an authentic performance by the celebrated guitar virtuoso and composer, Fernando Sor... Carter has done scholarly service to the study of the early guitar in this fascinating collection of minuets, variations and studies.

Gramophone Magazine
The use of an instrument which is lighter and smaller than a modern classical instrument... results in a delicate yet surprisingly broad range of tones and coloursàThis, together with Carter's refined musicianship and trademark dynamic shading shows the selection of Sor's minuets to be so much more than merely well-crafted salon music. Superb.

The Independent on Sunday
In these charming menuets and studies... William Carter follows the composer's directions, playing with his fingerpads. The sound is intimate and nostalgic, even in the Opus 14 Grand Solo, with the closing harmonics of the Opus 3 Menuet in G acting as a chaste farewell kiss.
