Raymond Bisha introduces the fifth and final volume in our series of recordings of guitar music by Agustín Barrios, the virtuoso Paraguayan guitarist and composer who was one of the first guitarists to understand the potential of making recordings. Sometimes referred to as ‘the Paganini of the guitar from the jungles of Paraguay’, his music is the antithesis of dense foliage, as exemplified by the fresh, airy, graceful works on this programme performed by Celil Refik Kaya, the Turkish guitarist and winner of numerous major awards for his exemplary performances.
