Notes & Reviews:

Though the origins of the modern guitar are virtually unknown, the sound of the instrument is found in musical compositions dating back almost seven hundred years. Classical Guitar Favorites will take you on a relaxing journey through three centuries of music and many European countries. From a romantic gondola ride in Venice, to the snow-capped mountains of the Austrian Alps, to a Nineteenth Century ballroom in Barcelona, the beautiful music of the classical guitar will flood your soul and take you to places that you may have never dreamed.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The exception to all this is the Schubert Lieder arranged by Mertz. For whatever reason, Garcia's playing is really lovely here. It's rather understated and a bit monochromatic, but it is lovingly, vocally, phrased, and I quite enjoyed all six. At Naxos prices, it would be worth acquiring for the Schubert alone.
