Notes & Reviews:

'Nuevo Mundo', the new solo album by the Mexican-born virtuoso guitarist Morgan Szymanski, features works dedicated to him by Julio César Oliva, Stephen McNeff, Alec Roth and Paul Coles set alongside well known works by Agustín Barrios and Simone Iannarellis Italian Coffee-inspired works. Morgan Szymanski has been highlighted as 'One to Watch' by both Gramophone Magazine and the BBC Music Magazine. Morgan and brother Dylan Szymanski's Sarabande Records, founded 2009, aims is to provide high quality recordings by some of the UK's finest young musicians at the start of their careers.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
I reviewed Mr Szymanski in a performance of chamber music, with mixed reactions (S/O 2011). I also have mixed reactions to this, perhaps because I had to understand what he was presenting here - a light, entertaining recital, without any pretension to depth or even virtuosity. It works on those terms. Four of the works were written for Mr Szymanski and are world premiere recordings. He was trained at the Royal College of Music in Londonwith Carlos Bonell and has won several awards and competitions. This is his fifth CD. The music is mostly in the pop-jazz idiom, but it will surely find a wide audience. Symanski's playing is clean, tasteful, with a nice range of tone. I would like to hear him in richer and more challenging music.
