21st Century Spanish Guitar, Volume 2
Adam Levin (guitar)
This is the second of a four-volume series presenting new Spanish works for solo guitar commissioned as part of the acclaimed guitarist Adam Levin’s residency in Spain. Amongst a wealth of exciting new names there are also some established composers such as Balada, whose imaginative re-invention of Granados’s Danzas españolas opens the recording, García Abril and Casablancas, already made familiar through an extensive catalogue of recordings on Naxos. Volume 1 (Naxos 8573024) was hailed by Scene Magazine as “one of the essential collections of solo instrumental performance released in the past 50 years”.
