Clear Note (CD)


Nowadays the classical guitar is truly international with performers and composers from around the world being involved in the development of its repertoire. Yet at the heart of the instrument’s appeal, Spanish music continues to fascinate players and public. In particular, the many pieces written for Andres Segovia by Iberian composers inspire a charismatic enchantment. Yet even beyond the orbit of Maestro Segovia’s creative presence, there is a hinterland of Spanish works equally imaginative and alluring.
