Notes & Reviews:

This is the world premiere recording of Lindberg’s Mano a mano which also features music by Magnus Lindberg, Toru. Magnus Lindberg is one of the leading composers of his generation. Best known for his orchestral works, Lindberg has been writing chamber music for the guitar ever since the beginning of his career. Mano a mano is Lindberg’s first piece for solo guitar and a major contribution to the contemporary guitar repertoire. Mano a mano is a powerful tribute to human life and its numerous manifestations, "a hedonistic feast of constant playing with sounds and sonorities" (Helsingin Sanomat, Vesa Sirén). It is a rejuvenating and optimistic work. One of the most broad-minded composers of the late 20th century,Tôru Takemitsu’s In the Woods remained his last work for his favourite instrument, the guitar. Timo Korhonen is one of the most versatile proponents of his instrument in the world.
