Notes & Reviews:

  • Coinciding with his 20th anniversary as a performer, this release features a broad overview of audience favorites as revealed to Mr. Vieaux during his playing career.
  • A diversity of nationalities herein includes music of Spanish, South American, Mexican, Cuban, French, and American origin.
  • '...among the elite of today's classical guitarists.' - Gramophone

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This is a delightful collection of popular works for guitar. Indeed, the title, Play, indicates that Vieaux is having fun with music that is light and enjoyable. This is the music that causes young (or young in spirit) people first to love the guitar. Guitar lovers will likely already have recordings of most of these works, but it's great to have them all on one disc, and all so wonderfully performed.

Jason Vieaux - PLAY - Azica Records

After nearly a dozen commercially issued CDs and having earned an enviable international reputation as a concert artist, Jason Vieaux has emerged as one of America’s, and the world’s, premiere classical guitarists.
“Play”, his newest effort, is a beautifully recorded collection of 20th century guitar music, with compositions by a who’s who of European, North and South American guitarist/composers. Ranging from the classicism of Tarrega and Segovia to the more modernist approaches of Andrew York and Leo Brouwer, Mr. Vieaux’s choice of repertoire showcases the full capabilities of his instrument, along with his own impeccable taste and flawless, seemingly effortless technique.
Topped off by his own arrangement of Duke Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood”, Jason Vieaux’s latest recording “Play” is a must-have for students and fans of classical guitar; it is, however, even more highly recommended to the general listener who may not be aware of just how entertaining this kind of music can be in the hands of a master.

Highest possible recommendation 10 out of 10 Oscar O. Veterano
