Notes & Reviews:

Lazhar Cherouana, winner of the 2012 coveted Pittaluga Competition, graduated with a Gold Medal from the conservatory of Lyon under the world famous Peruvian artist Jesus Castro-Balbi, studying further with Eliot Fisk and Marco Tamayo in Austria. Here he demonstrates the guitar's versatility and capacity to absorb many styles and idioms. Rameau's mimicry of birdsong is the spectacular opening to a program which unites Dusan Bogdanovic's Serbian energy with the Basque lyricism of Manjon's Aire Vasco, and the delicate colors of Asencio's Collectici intimto the 19th century Italianate virtuosity of Legnani and Regondi.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Mr Cherouana is still pursuing his post-graduate studies at the Salzburg Mozarteum. This recording was part of the first prize for the 2012 Michele Pittaluga Competition. In past years, that competition has boosted the careers of the likes of Petrit Ceku, Marcin Dylla, Lorenzo Micheli, Anabel Montesinos, Irina Kulikova, and Artyom Dervoed. Things are looking good for the guitar world. This is a wide-ranging recital, and Cherouana performs each piece with a superb technique, inventive expression, and a wide range of color and dynamics. His Rameau is electifying, and the two 19th Century works by Regondi and Legnani are just as beautifully played. The other big work here is Dusan Bogdanovic's Sonata 2. He handles the Balkaninfluenced work with aplomb, with plenty of energy and mystery as needed. I look forward to following Cherouana's career as he develops.
