MusicWeb International, November 2011

This is a well considered and very nicely recorded programme which does no harm at all to either the guitar or Villa-Lobos’s music.

This is a very fine recording and a highly enjoyable programme of arrangements from Villa-Lobos. Alternative instrumentations almost always offer a new and refreshing view on pieces. As it is, these guitar quartet arrangements offer an excellent programme of refined and highly involving music. Read complete review

This is a magnificent program by one of the world’s finest guitar quartets. If, like most guitarists, you know Villa-Lobos’s music for guitar but none of his other works, this will be quite a discovery for you.

The Brazilian Guitar Quartet’s performance of this music is flawless. Ensemble is perfect, and the range of color and dynamics is wonderful and satisfying. Their rhythmic energy is infectious. I’ve never encountered this music in guitar arrangements before, and can only hope for more. © 2011 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
