Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

In a few words, the celebrated Greek guitarist Eleftheria Kotzia describes her new release for SOMM: "It was the folkoric element, expressed by the special, intimate sound of the guitar, which attracted me to the repertoire I chose for this recording. My previous discs contained Latin, Latin American, and Mediterranean repertoire which in turn inspired me to research music which pulls all these diverse strands together from both the old and the new world. The 'old world' features strongly in works by Armenian, Macedonian, Balkan, and Iranian as well as Spanish composers. They express the voice of the contemporary classical guitar. Above all, it's music that I love."

Gramophone
Impressive ... life-enhancing ... a breath of fresh air.

American Record Guide
A wizard-strong, sensuous player with bite and sass.
