Notes & Reviews:

Homages and dedications often have a veiled mystique: the relationship between the composer and somebody else, a story and emotional experience hidden in the music. Homages are created from the heart; to whom they are dedicated is not always easy to fathom, but they can speak and bloom as though they were only written for oneself, creating a poetry and beauty which fills the hearts of listeners. Available on Signum, “Homages” is an album by Swiss-born guitarist Christoph Denoth featuring works for guitar solo by Villa-Lobos, de Falla, Turina, Rodrigo, Sor, Malats, da Narvaez and Llobet.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Denoth is a fine musician. You won't find much here to object to, and there are many truly beautiful passages. If the program appeals to you, you won't be disappointed. Many of the works can be heard in stronger performances by others (I remain very fond of David Leisner's recording of the Villa-Lobos, along with all the etudes - M/J 2001), but you'll need several discs to cover it all.
