Notes & Reviews:

"The piano music of Albeniz and Granados has been raided often by guitarists, and those transcriptions are an important part of the repertory. Indeed, many of the less weighty pieces actually benefit from being recast. What can sound inconsequential on piano may be more congenial when returned to the medium the works evoke. But the 500-pound gorillas, the really big masterworks have usually been avoided. You need a certain amount of sheer sonic weight and virtuosic intensity to play those. These are three virtuoso players with plenty of technique and sensitivity, a trio that plays with a single mind. They are beautifully coordinated in timbre, dynamics, and rhythm. The transcription is by Dejour, and it is so well executed that one can forget the echoes of the piano and enjoy the wider timbral range of the guitars. I will say that I sometimes miss the bass sonority of the piano, which is simply impossible for the guitar, even in multiples. But the expressive phrasing, masterly rubato, and evocative colors of the Campanella makes for a memorable performance. Listen to 'El Amor y la Muerte' for an example of what the sounds of the guitar can add to this piece." -ARG
