From the booklet: “In this cd, two phenomena intersect in the musical reality of today. There is, above all, the discovery of the guitar. The instrument of Sor and Giuliani seemed to be destined almost exclusively to folk music or popular music and had very few illustrious exceptions in the XIX century. During the last decades many composers have written music for guitars challenging the difficulties of this attempt.” by Mario Bortolotto TRACKLIST
