5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best-ever arrangements of Beatles' songs, 12 Jun 2002
This review is from: Here, There and Everywhere: Göran Söllscher plays The Beatles (Audio CD)
This may be the best-ever recording of arrangements of Beatles' songs. Other performers attempts at Beatles' songs are so often disasters. [I don't include George Martin's In My Life with these, though.]
What makes this CD so successful is Sollscher's classical guitar expertise and the quality of the people writing the arrangements, which includes Toru Takemitsu, noted Japanese classical composer. Five of the arrangements are by Sollscher himself.
Takemitsu's arrangement of the title track shows familiarity with the classical guitar medium, though it also features some exotic jazz chords. His other arrangements on the disk are Hey Jude, Michelle and Yesterday.
Without a doubt, the most interesting arrangements on the disk are the six by Borje Sandquist. His stray furthest from the original tunes, but do this in a musically satisfying way.

5.0 out of 5 stars In A Different Style., 10 Mar 2013

This review is from: Here, There and Everywhere: Göran Söllscher plays The Beatles (Audio CD)
This music was very calming and soothing. Just put the music on, stare and daydream out of a window, entranced by the clouds and the beautiful blue sky and relax.

The arrangements of these Beatles numbers for the Spanish guitar are really very interesting if listened to very closely but also a very good relaxing background music. I am very happy with this CD.

A beautiful c.d. Unfortunately I lent it to someone and he doesn't appear to want to give it back.
