I'm surprised no one has reviewed this album yet, as I feel it is one of the best classical guitar albums of the past decade. I always purchase the latest Guitar Recitals from Naxos and while I can kind of see the point of some reviewers (that many of today's players sound the same (like virtuosic robots)), there are exceptions. This is clearly one of the exceptions. This is modern playing at its best - wonderful musicianship, feeling, technique - and Marcin gets an incredible sound out of his instrument. The recording starts off with Rodrigo's very diffcult Junto al Generalife. I had the pleasure to see Marcin while on his GFA tour, and during the extremely technical sections of this piece his playing literally elicited gasps (and even an "oh my God") from the audience. This recording measures up to the live performance. The Tansman, Maw and Ponce pieces are equally as good. My only criticism is that it's taking a long time for him to record more music! We're very lucky to have...
I was so intrigued by the Maw piece and it didn't disappoint. He was on the radio awhile back doing an interview and played the first movement of the Maw and I was hooked. I look forward to much more listening of this adventurous program!
Beautiful playing of beautiful music. The Maw piece is stunning, not only in performance, but compositinonally (if that is a word). Elegant and tasteful. Not normally a fan of solo guitar, but Tansman is a true artist!
