This collection of hidden gems, ranging from Renaissance vihuela works by Milan and Valderrabano, a classical work by Sor, and a guitar transcription of Grieg s romantic piano piece to avant-garde works by Falla and Brindle and flamenco-style works by Angel Barrios, symbolises Kazu Suwa s personal interpretation of Federico García Lorca s poem Adivinanaza de la guitarra (Riddle of the Guitar) as a way to explore the essence of the Spanish guitar. This extensive selection also traces the ever changing music styles and philosophies behind them throughout Renaissance to 20th century while exhibiting the everlasting quality of the Spanish guitar: its warm, vibrant and sensual sonority and lirycism that keeps capturing listeners imagination.
