Notes & Reviews:

"...Federico Moreno Torroba (1891-1982) was one of Spain's leading composers who wrote extensively for the guitar. He worked closely with Segovia to expand both his quantity and quality of music for the guitar. His music is quintessentially Spanish and is both brilliant and touching. The twenty-eight tracks on this CD encompass a good cross section of Torroba's solo guitar music...Telarc has realistically captured Russell's finely nuanced playing...a must have." -Bauman, Fanfare
