Notes & Reviews:

A recital of Edvard Grieg's lovely Lyric Pieces for piano, transcribed for solo guitar. Guitarist Peter Fletcher wrote the transcriptions for this recording. Mr. Fletcher is in demand as a performer in cultural venues throughout the United States. '...strong technique, a consistent tone, and a bold interpretive imagination...' - American Record Guide

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
He performs 23 of the 66 and they all sound perfectly at home on guitar. Fletcher's playing is excellent - joyous, charming, delicate, exciting, as fits each piece. His technical command is quite fine.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Patrych Sound Studios, Bronx, New York (2009-2012).
