This double-CD compilation of Spanish guitar favourites ranges in style from gypsy folk to flamenco and also includes a variety of slow, languorous pieces, which show the instrument at its most romantic. Most of the composers are Spanish born and the music is inspired Spanish landscapes and literature. Among the highlights are Albeniz’s Asturias, Mallorca, Sevilla, the adagio from Rodrigo’s famous Guitar Concerto and Castelnuovo’s long-neglected masterpiece, Escarraman. Perfect for conjuring up the balmy heat of sleepy Mediterranean afternoons. The musicians include Norbert Kraft, Denis Azabagic, Antigoni Goni, Lorenzo Micheli and Martha Masters. © 2016
