Notes & Reviews:

This release is a delicious offering of Villa-Lobos' clear and expressive works, unique pieces reflecting the transitional period between the Classic and the Romantic of Giuliani, bound together with the melodious and lush works of Castelnuovo-Tedesco. How mind-blowing it is to be able to enjoy the compositions of one of the most underrated guitar maestros of all time next to the creations of one of the leading guitar virtuosi of the early 19th c., tied up together with the works of one of the most fascinating modern composers - all in one recording. Now on SACD, you get to indulge in the Mauro Giuliani, Maria Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Heitor Villa-Lobos Guitar Concertos in the intended sound quality as when they were recorded.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The Villa-Lobos is perhaps the best of the lot - it responds well to Yepes's bright, twangy tone.. I've often written about the astonishing quality of the next generation of virtuosos coming up, though few of them have concerto recordings. On Johannes Moller's first Naxos disc (S/O 2011) he made a brilliant programming choice of putting the concerto's cadenza (as a separate movement, as it was written) together with three etudes to form the equivalent of a four-movement sonata. I would love to hear his take on the whole concerto.
