Kenneth Keaton
American Record Guide, September 2011

…this [is] the best Scarlatti I’ve ever heard on solo guitar. It even rivals the magnificent Assad brothers’ recording on Nonesuch—and they had the advantage of two guitars.

This is sparkling playing. Passage work is tossed off effortlessly, no matter how rapid; ornamentation is graceful and elegant, perfectly and stylishly realized. © 2011 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Minor 7th, July 2011

…Mesirca has chosen 16 to include in this CD collection, and has juxtaposed each of them brilliantly to offer a full palette of emotion and virtuosity—pitting Allegro against Adagio and Larghetto almost as though mimicking a recapitulation of life’s peaks and valleys. These are the most enjoyable solo classical guitar transcriptions and recordings I’ve heard in years. © 2011 Minor 7th Read complete review
