Notes & Reviews:

The guitar has existed in one form or another since ancient times, but the significance of the role of Spain in the instrument's evolution cannot be disputed. Most of the composers featured on this ablum are Spanish-born, or have deep rooted connections with the country. The choice of music on this 2 CD set ranges from gypsy folk to flamenco and also includes a variety of pieces which show the guitar at its most romantic.
