Antonio Jiménez Manjón (1866-1919): Worls for Guitar / Raphaella Smits, guitar

Notes & Reviews:

Raphaëlla Smits, the Belgium grande dame of the guitar, has spent decades making memorable recordings, many of them for the Accent label. This recital, containing pieces by the blind, Argentinean by way of Spain Antonio Jiménez Manjón (1866-1919), appeared in 1999, and did admirable justice to a composer whose name - despite the high quality of his melodiousness music - has not figured frequently on recordings. The Vicente Arias (1833-1914) guitar of 1899 used for this recital came from the collection of Narciso Yepes in Madrid, Spain. A total of about two dozen Arias instruments are known to exist.
