Notes & Reviews:

This first of four volumes represents award-winning guitarist Adam Levin's major collaboration with the new century's 'Spanish Masters'. Bridges to the past include medieval sources in the Secuencia Sefardita and Baroque in the unconventional variations of Handeliana . These stand alongside pastoral scenes in Viento de Primavera and a celebration of Albeniz from Leonardo Balada. From contemplative moods to spectacular virtuosity, this is a musical voyage both unexpected and unforgettable. Adam Levin has been acclaimed for his 'enviable technique' and a 'high musicianship which shines like a beacon through his performances'. (Classical Guitar magazine)

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Mr Levin, with the support of the Fulbright Foundation, has embarked on an ambitious project: to explore recent music for guitar by Spanish composers. And by recent, I mean seriously recent - the oldest music here dates from 2009. If the rest of the music maintains this quality, this will, indeed, be a wild ride. Four volumes are projected, with 30 new works. Adam Levin's playing is superb - no technical difficulties, lovely tone, wide range of dynamics and articulation. Of the seven works here, five are world premieres.
