Notes & Reviews:

The first volume of virtuoso guitarist Smaro Gregoriadou's Reinventing Guitar series was hailed as "a guitar edition that changes the flow of the history of the instrument." In Reinventing Guitar II Gregoriadou again utilizes reinvented guitars, this time to exploit the dynamic range of sound of the period in novel transcriptions of Bach, Handel, and Scarlatti. Featuring extensive reference materials and research notes, this is certain to excite the most avid guitar aficionado as well as the casual listener.

Fanfare Magazine, November/December 2012
Any classical guitarist, professional or aspiring, could learn a lot from this CD, I think. Anyone who enjoys just listening to the guitar will get more than the usual enjoyment from Gregoriadou, even if they don't appreciate or care about her instruments, her tunings, or any other practical concerns. Highly recommended, then.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
I had a great deal of enjoyment from this, and if you have a reasonably open mind, you will, too.
