Notes & Reviews:

Even today Andrs Segovia continues to influence our understanding of guitar music like no other musician in his field. This virtuoso's countless compositional commissions contributed significantly to the popularity of the Spanish national instrument and its qualification for the concert hall even beyond his native Iberia. Outside Spain, however, it is a little-known fact that Federico Moreno Torroba so perfectly matched Segovia's tone even in his very first compositional efforts that the master recommended his works as models for other composers. Frank Bungarten has set out to give Torroba the credit he deserves with this fine selection from his extensive oeuvre for solo guitar making us eager to hear more.

Torroba wanted to create an original Spanish musical style and initially specialized in the zarzuela, a sort of Spanish operetta. However, he quickly found his way to the guitar, developing an amazingly genuine guitar sound in his works, even though he himself never played this instrument. While in many other composers, from Rodrigo to Castelnuovo-Tedesco, one has the impression that they had to wrest their ideas from the guitar, in Torroba the instrument and the composition form an unprecedented symbiosis, very much to the joy of guitarists.

Torroba's music is in the best hands with Frank Bungarten. After all, Bungarten is one of the most knowledgeable interpreters of the Spanish guitar repertoire. He received the first prize at the GranadaGuitar Competition from Andrs Segovia himself and ever since then has ranked internationally as one of the most sought-after soloists and chamber partners.
