John Sunier
Audiophile Audition, July 2002

"The solo guitar works on the Naxos CD are mostly from the middle phase and attempt to widen the expressive possibilities of the guitar, but the variations on a theme of Django's and the concluding Paisaje Cubano show his new emphasis on melody, color and fun."

Steve Koenig
La Folia, June 2002

I like Papandreou's way with his work. The pieces sound distinct from each other. The recording is close-up and with just enough air to make the guitar ring... savor a few pieces at a time, and it is tasty.

American Record Guide, June 2002

"Naxos has wisely not attempted any chronological ordering, instead choosing to make each volume a varied and satisfying program. Such a strategy is evident on this volume: the repertory is neatly balanced between works from Brouwer's middle, experimental period and his later, more tonal, neo-romantic period. The works succeed largely because of Brouwer's intimate knowledge of the guitar's capabilities. His idiomatic yet extraordinarily inventive writing presents the guitar at its most dramatically arresting in works like Conticum and La Espiral Eternal. A superb second installment to the series."
