Notes & Reviews:

This collection brings together guitar preludes by Asafiev and Ponce, and includes world premiere recordings of Badings's 12 Preludes, Sauget's 3 Preludes and Farkas's Exercitium Tonale

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The guitarist is Cristiano Porqueddu, whose stunning achievement in a complete recording of Angelo Gilardino's Trascendentia, five books of 12 transcendental etudes each, has been noted here (N/D 2009). His playing is also fine in these works, technically secure, with an acute musical imagination and probing interpretations. First, to the heart: Ponce's 24 Preludes. Yes, 24 - Ponce originally conceived of a Chopin-like cycle of preludes in all major and minor keys. Still, Porqueddu makes a convincing case for the set as originally conceived, and I'm glad to have the original. I'm also glad to hear even the Segovia 12 in such fine readings - these are miraculous pieces, compressing a whole musical world in just a page, and they should be more widely performed.

Notes & Reviews:
