Notes & Reviews:

Michalis Kontaxakis, First Prize Winner in the 2005 International Francisco Tarrega Guitar Competition, is considered today to be one of the leading young Greek guitarists. He studied the guitar with Vassilis Mastorakis and Costas Cotsiolis, and at the Robert Schumann Musikhoschshute in Dusseldorf. In this recital, featuring a guitar made by Alkis, Athens, he performs the world premiere recording of 'Preludios de Primavera' (Preludes of Spring) by Joaquin Clerch, and Tarrega's enchanting Fantasy on themes from 'La Traviata'.
