Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The collection begins with Coste's light and lively interpretations of Bellini's Norma and Il pirata, followed by Legnani's Cavatina from Ernani by Verdi, a simple piece that makes full use of all facets of the guitar.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Modrzejewski plays everything with the technical finish the music demands, and with real love. If you know the operas, you can tell he does, too - tempos and phrasing are idiomatic, which is to say vocal - he really sings. This is a treasurable performance.

The Telegraph, 19th May 2013
Modrzejewski's sensitivity to colour, and the refined musicality of his phrasing, makes him an excellent re-interpreter of these operatic melodies, and he also has a brilliant technique when the inevitable virtuosic showing-off is required.
