Notes & Reviews:

Greek virtuoso guitarist Smaro Gregoriadou is a multi-award winning artist who travels across Europe and North America teaching and performing solo works. On this recording, she performs renditions of modern and contemporary pieces for guitar. Gregoriadou strives to "reinvent guitar." Meaning, her goal is to, "provide historically informed, well-substantiated, compatible guitar interpretations of Renaissance and baroque music that at the same time can be fresh, alive and convincing; and to offer a new reading for new repertoire, suitable for modern audiences and venues." (Gregoriadou) The final work on this recording is an original composition by Gregoriadou, which was a response to a commission by the Staatliche Hochschule fur Musik Trossingen.
