Notes & Reviews:

The brilliant young guitarist Kyuhee Park, winner of the 2010 Agustín Barrios and 2012 Alhambra International Guitar competitions, has crafted a recital that focuses on a sequence of sonatas and a quartet of evocative character pieces. The three Scarlatti sonatas exude dance, lyricism and virtuosity respectively, whilst Anton Diabelli's engaging Sonata in A, heard in Julian Bream's arrangement, is one of the relatively few extended guitar works of the Classical period. Lennox Berkeley's Sonatina is both elegant and complex. After Malats' popular encore piece Serenata Espanola and Barrios' sublime Un Sueno en la Floresta and Chopin-inspired Vals, the recital concludes with Lopez's richly varied Impresiones y paisajes, inspired by Lorca's first book.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This recording was part of the prize for winning the 2012 Alhambra Competition. She is already a fully mature artist and joins the ranks of remarkably talented young artists that bring the guitar to new levels. Her Scarlatti is just lovely, crackling with energy, with beautiful, singing melodies. Park's Malats and Barrios are expressive and tasteful, and both are easy to play. Lopez's Impressiones y Paisajes was the required piece for the Alhambra Competition. It's one of those pieces that used to be fashionable - harmonics, sympathetic vibrations, percussion effects whacking away, "Bad guitar! Naughty guitar!", muffled arpeggios with approximate pitches. Kyuhee Park is an exciting artist. I anticipate great things from her.
