Notes & Reviews:

There is only one word that can describe Narciso Yepes' technique: extraordinary. He was one of the finest virtuoso classical guitarists of the 20th century and his DG albums are regarded as reference recordings. This 5CD Original Jackets collection brings together all of his concerto recordings for the Yellow Label, recorded between 1969 and 1979. The repertoire ranges from Vivaldi's Lute Concertos adapted for guitar, to works written for Yepes and other leading guitarists of the 20th century.
