Notes & Reviews:

Without going beyond the boundaries of tonality or the expressive sub-genres of Romanticism, the works recorded on this disc in some ways suggest a journey through varied landscapes within a common aesthetic. Each one has its own peculiarities, of course, inasmuch as composers Tarrega and A. J. Manjon were of the 19th c., while Torroba and de la Maza clearly belong to the 20th. Finally, between these pairs, is the figure of Miguel Llobet, representing something of a bridge between them. The Russian guitarist Antón Baranov won 1st Prize of the 2013 Tarrega Int'l Guitar Competition Benicassim.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
All the miniatures are presented with such care. His 'Recuerdos' is subtle, quiet, but beautifully shaped, with a gorgeously even tremolo. And the Llobet Sor variations (an increasingly popular work) is given a perfectly integrated balance of all the variations. I particularly enjoy his performances of Sainz de la Maza's Platero y Yo excerpts. This is based on the same poetry as the wondrous cycle by Castelnuovo-Tedesco. It's charming, and the pictorial effects are delightfully realized by Baranov. Truffles hand made by an expert chocolatier. Enjoy. It's the good stuff.
