Reviews

The Guitar Issue
The compositions here fall into that category of baroque music that is pleasant to listen to, but falls short of any musical brilliance. The performances are excellent. Mr. Lindberg does a magnificent job with his part, and the ensemble is wonderful, too. My complaint is with the technical side. Specifically, I find the guitar far too quiet. This is, of course, a perennial issue whenever a guitar must compete with other instruments. In mitigation, one may point out that these are quintets, not concertos, so the guitar may not be intended to dominate. My advice? If you simply want some pleasant baroque chamber music, this will do quite nicely. If you are considering this because you have specific interest in the guitar, then you might be better off with the Pepe Romero version of these pieces in which the guitar sound is more pronounced. Final note: if you want an off-the-wall version of the Fandango, check out the Jordi Savall version.
