Notes & Reviews:

World-renowned guitarist William Carter presents an appealing collection of works by Spanish guitar virtuoso and composer Fernando Sor, a much-anticipated follow-up to his acclaimed Early Works recording of 2010 (named Gramophone Editor's Choice). This second collection showcases some of Sor's most commercially popular works with as much appeal for listeners today as for the original cosmopolitan audiences. A founding-member of the famous Palladian Ensemble, Carter has a deserved reputation as one of the finest classical guitarists with critically acclaimed performances as an orchestral player, chamber musician and soloist.

Financial Times
His mastery of the idiom is such that we only notice the music's salon-like gentleness and intimacy, not the dextrous technique required to make it so.

The Independent on Sunday
Played on the fingertips, Carter's gracefully shaped recital takes its title from the Opus 50 Caprice pour guitar seul, an idyll pitched on the cusp of Romanticism.

Gramophone Magazine
Carter always combines an improvisational exuberance with an intense inwardness that is even more pronounced on this disc... one has the impression that one is hearing Sor's true voice, in autumnal raiment, for the first time, the sublime economy and nascent romanticism of the writing growing in significance thanks to the delicate colours afforded by this guitar's lighter construction... My disc of the year so far.
