CD Reviews

Great guitarist, great music
David Mitchel | Appomattox, VA USA | 03/01/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Christopher Parkening is a wonderful guitarist. On this release one can hear how wonderfully subtle a soloist he is. His phrasing on the largo movement of Vivaldi's Concerto in D (track 2) is particularly poetic. The Vivaldi pieces here are my favorites; I especially like the Trio in C (tracks 13-15). The combination of harpsichord, violin, and guitar is magical, making for some delicious baroque chamber music. In short, I highly recommend this recording."
Great Playing of Guitar Concertos
rodboomboom | Dearborn, Michigan United States | 08/01/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is just a marvelous collection of well-done performance of one great classical guitarist. From the compositions of Vivaldi (two are included), the world premiere recording of Peter Warlock's Capriol and Praetorius' Suite in D, Parkening puts forth a marvelous effort.His playing seems effortless but full of passion and spirit. Especially pleasing to my ear is the piece by Warlock and Praetorius. You will not tire of listening to this variety of Concertos with its varying styles as well as pace."
Amazing what an acoustic guitar can do!

"I'm just learning guitar and a friend who plays classical guitar reccommended Peter Warlock's Capriol. This CD blew me away and has encouraged me to practice harder and to play more."
