Notes & Reviews:

Loreley presents award-winning guitarist Emmanuel Rossfelder in an album of works for guitar and orchestra by Joaquín Rodrigo. The Concierto de Aranjuez, far and away Rodrigo's best-known work, was inspired by the gardens at Palacio Real de Aranjuez, built by Philip II in the16th century. The concerto is paired with the Fantasía para un gentilhombre, written in 1954 for the guitarist Andrés Segovia and based on themes by 17th century Spanish composer Gaspar Sanz. In both works, Rossfelder is accompanied by the Orchestre d'Auvergne under the baton of Arie Van Beek.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Emmanuel Rossfelder, student of Alexandre Lagoya, has already recorded five CDs and won or placed in several international competitions. And he is a very good player - technically, he is superb, playing the Aranjuez with no hint of its numerous difficulties. He particularly shines in the final movement, where he maintains precise control. He is also fine in the Fantasia.
