This review is from: Spanish Guitar Recital (Audio CD)
With his sheer variety of tone, Bream illustrates Beethoven's contention that the guitar is the instrument most like a full orchestra. In this recital of Albeniz and Granados piano works transcribed for guitar, we hear everything from a sharp cutting twang to a softer, mellifluous strum. The sounds are sometimes unexpected but always colorful and individual. Bream conveys great affection for this music in these warmly spontaneous performances. The overall result is like being at a recital in an intimate setting. This is highly recommended, especially with its added selections by Rodrigo. This "Navigator" reissue is not available everywhere so I urge you to take advantage of this offering!
