Notes & Reviews:

Mak Grgic is a young, Los Angeles-based classical guitarist. Originally from Slovenia, he has won many awards in Europe and North America. This is his debut recoding. The Washington Post calls him "a lyrical insightful player".

This CD features well-known, popular music which has been featured in movies.

Of a recent concert performance of the music on this CD, the (Texas) Star Telegram said: "... he moved into a program that would have needed a bucket of popcorn to be any more cinematic. The Spanish Dance No. 5 by Spanish composer Enrique Granados offered an interestingly different arrangement of a familiar work. Another highlight of the concert was an even more familiar work, Isaac Albeniz's Asturias, which appears in Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona. This passionate, driving work makes frequent appearances at recitals such as this one, but never wears out its welcome. And Grgic did an excellent job of catering to the expectations of the audience while still make the piece his own."
