Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In the vast panorama of 20th-century guitar music, the works of Madrid composer Tomás Marco hold a prominent position. Born in 1942, Marco first became known as an exponent of the Spanish avant-garde in 1963 with Albayalde for solo guitar, and would return to write for that instrument in later years. 22 Tarots, Presto Mormorando and Sonata de Fuego were written between 1990 and 1996. Even though they are formally very different - a collection of short pieces, a single work, a sonata - the three works share traits that warrant their being united in this sort of short anthology.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The technical demands of all three works are immense, and guitarist Fantoni meets fearlessly. I can't imagine these works played much better. If you're less put off by the replacement of melody with gesture, you may find much to discover and enjoy here.

MusicWeb International, July 2012
All three works on this bountiful CD, from the minute Presto Mormorando to the massive 22 Tarots brim with interest and attractiveness. Add to this memorable melodies, atmospheric harmonies, suave surges of animation and nostalgic moods. It all adds up to an irresistible recital that should appeal to most tastes, from those who know their Tárrega or Pujol to the general listener who enjoys Bream or Segovia.
