Guitar Collection

In 1994, NAXOS undertook to create the world's largest catalogue of recordings of the classical guitar. Produced under the artistic supervision of renowned guitarist, Norbert Kraft, with co-producer Bonnie Silver, the collection today numbers more than 70 titles, a clear realization of the company's aim.

Using the finest microphones in a magical acoustic, perfectly suited to the guitar's subtle nuances, and the latest digital technology, the recordings capture all the intimate detail and dynamic depth of the guitar's voice.

The Guitar Collection focuses on three repertoire streams:

  • The 'Complete Works' editions include the entire output of the instrument's important composers from the 19th and 20th Centuries. The works of Sor, Giuliani, Rodrigo, Torroba, Lauro, Ponce, Brouwer, and Barrios are among the many represented here.
  • The 'Laureate Series' features recent competition winners - stars of the future - in recital programmes displaying the artistry of these exciting young players.
  • Our 'National Series' presents music indigenous to various countries, mostly Latin American, in which the guitar is an integral part of the cultural fabric.

As well, the extensive output of history's greatest lute composers, S.L. Weiss and John Dowland, is currently being recorded by today's finest Baroque and Renaissance lutenists.

The Guitar Collection, a monumental achievement in the history of this universally loved instrument, has been received with great critical acclaim.
