Notes & Reviews:

Partnering for this release are two of the leading classical guitarists of their generation, Carmen Alvarez & Francisco Bernier. It is Ms. Alvarez's wide knowledge of guitar repertory for children, didactic concerts in connection with her pedagogical work as well as her study of, and writings about, Mr. Bogdanovic's music that led to, and inspired, this project. "Two things were the main inspiration for bringing this work to life: on the one hand, my longstanding interest in the music folklore of the world, the recent birth of my son Theodore, on the other." (Dusan Bogdanovic)

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
What a delight! I've never encountered anything quite like this, and I welcome it. This is a set of works for student guitarists - or, more accurately, for teachers to perform with their students, so one part may be more demanding than the other. The music, all arranged by Dusan Bogdanovic, takes its sources from, well, everything. It opens with 'Ein Feste Burg', followed by an Azerbaijani folk song, then Korea, then Denmark, then Hawaii, Greece, Indonesia, Namibia, Ireland, Ecuador - you name it. 28 pieces in all, each more charming than all the others. He even includes the 'Epitaph of Sekilos' from Ancient Greece, perhaps the world's oldest preserved song. Performing demands are modest.
