Notes & Reviews:

This recording skirts the margins of eclectic chamber music for the guitar, performed by one of Finland's most versatile and sought-after classical guitarists.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
If you're a Crumb fan, this is probably worth getting; the Kurtag is a very short set. The playing is superb; the sonics suit the music just fine. Notes are in Finnish and English.
