5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar recital to take you back in time., 27 Oct 2002

This review is from: Kevin Gallagher - Guitar Recital (Audio CD)
Kevin Gallagher's recital of Renaissance & Baroque music is played with appropriate rhythmic style & phrasing. His selection of Narvaez, Milano & Guerau is particularly welcome, displaying the guitar's versatility with early music. The high tuning of his guitar creates an authentic & light sonority similar to the lute, but with more clarity. One is struck by the nobility of such pieces as Cancion del Emperador & La Campagna, while the Dowland Pavan is melancholy without becoming moribund.
Turning to the Bach, Mr. Gallagher takes a fairly free approach to the Prelude, while the Fugue is moderately paced. Only in the Allegro does the tempo sound slightly restrained. As to the Weiss selection, performance is exemplary: a fitting conclusion to an imaginative programme. Recording quality is good, liner notes informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality music, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kevin Gallagher - Guitar Recital (Audio CD)
Gallagher is a new name to me but he is an excellent guitar player and really love this CD. He has a real feel for 'early' lute type music (although played on the guitar) he makes the style interesting and moving whereas in less capable hands this type of music can be dry and boring. Would love to see Gallagher live in the UK. The delivery of this CD was also great service (came from USA in very speedy time).
