Notes & Reviews:

The young Polish musician Krzysztof Meisinger (b. 1984) is one of the most fascinating and charismatic guitarists of his generation. With the legendary Academy of St Martin in the Fields under the direction of Brazilian conductor José Maria Florêncio, he has recorded the famous Guitar Concerto of Heitor Villa-Lobos. In this work from 1951, Villa-Lobos paid eloquent homage to the guitar's qualities as a concert instrument. The recording also includes the Five Preludes for solo guitar, and an arrangement of Melodia Sentimental for guitar, violin, and string orchestra. This program, recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, ideally displays the flexibility of a young soloist ready to conquer the world with his bewitching playing.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Studio 1, Abbey Road Studios, London (11/2011).
